Marblehead has beautiful water in the harbor and ocean; and beautiful drinking water in its taps

Marblehead’s water comes from two reservoirs, Quabbin and Wachusett, and is supplied by the Massachusetts Water Resources Authority (MWRA) which released its 2012 survey this week.

Over the last 20 years the lead in MWRA’s water, as measured by parts per billion, has dropped from 60 to just 8.

And in Marblehead that number is even lower, just 4 ppb.

Marblehead: water, water everywhere and lots and lots to drink (with apologies to Coleridge).
