It is the mission of the Town Of Marlinton Water Department to provide our customers with a safe drinking water supply, water for fire protection, and an adequate supply of water for our essential daily needs and future growth.
The Water Department takes the necessary measures to meet the West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection’s health-based standards for drinking water and to protect against both naturally occurring and man-made contaminates that may be found in drinking water.
The Water Department reacts in a timely, professional manner to all inquiries, problems, and requests from customers. The Water Department maintains the newly built water treatment plant on 9th Avenue, plus five water tanks to serve customer needs, and oversees the bulk water operation.
The Town of Marlinton lies between the Greenbrier River and Knapps Creek – both great waterways for recreation in the region. It is the town’s goal and obligation to protect these treasures. Marlinton’s water department is committed to high standards, personal accountability, and teamwork to achieve our goals of providing value, vision, and purpose to the public.
