The Massachusetts Water Resources Authority provides wholesale water and sewer services to 2.5 million people and more than 5,500 businesses in 61 communities in eastern and central Massachusetts.

This website provides information on drinking water quality, the health of Boston Harbor and Massachusetts Bay, transparency, progress on projects to improve water and sewer infrastructure, community assessments, school education, and many other MWRA programs.

Since its creation in 1985, MWRA has built more than $6 billion of essential new facilities, with another $1.6 billion planned for the near future. In addition to the clean-up of Boston Harbor and the modernization of the region’s water system, MWRA owns hundreds of miles of water and sewer pipes, and dozens of other facilities that require either upgrades or replacements.  We have also established aggressive maintenance programs to ensure that these facilities never fall back into a cycle of disrepair.

The keys to our success are the strong leadership of our Board of Directors and the dedication of the men and women who work at MWRA making sure that these critical services are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

As important as MWRA's goal of carrying out its capital projects and operating programs is its goal of limiting rate increases to its customer communities. We are committed to keeping operating expenses down as much as possible, without compromising water and sewer services which are vital for public health, environmental protection and the economy.

We welcome any comments, questions or suggestions you may have for improving this site. Thanks for visiting!

Sincerely,

s

Frederick A. Laskey
Executive Director
