It is our mission to deliver the highest quality water possible, to provide adequate fire protection and to provide a reliable and safe water service to the citizens of Marshall. To accomplish our goal it is necessary to continue to make improvements to and maintain the water treatment plant, wells, pumps, pump houses, equipment and the water distribution system. We must also strive to maintain the integrity of the water system through increased security and continue to work toward reducing the cost of providing service to the citizens of Marshall by operating in the most efficient way possible.
