Revere, MA Water Quality Report
Where Your Drinking Water Comes From
The City of Revere purchases all of its water directly from the Massachusetts Water Resources Authority (MWRA). The water is delivered through five MWRA master meters into the City’s distribution system. This system consists of a network of pipes, valves, hydrants and service lines. The system is also used for fire protection. Revere’s distribution system is comprised of approximately 107 miles of water mains ranging from four to sixteen inches in diameter. There are approximately eight hundred and forty four hydrants that are owned and maintained by the City, with over one thousand gate valves that allow isolated portions of the system to be shut down for repairs and maintenance.
How the MWRA Provides Safe Drinking Water
The Massachusetts Water Resource Authority maintains state-of-the-art treatment procedures and is committed to providing a reliable supply of water and to make sure your water is safe, fresh and tastes great. Redundant pipelines and tunnels allow inspection and maintenance of key facilities while ensuring uninterrupted service. The MWRA also continues to rehabilitate and replace pipelines throughout the distribution system to improve both reliability and water quality.
