Water FiltrationPlant

It is the job of the Water Filtration Plant to make sure the city of Marysville has safe water to consume. Efforts are made to always improve the water treatment process and protect our water resources. Marysville Water Filtration Plant employees are committed to ensure the quality of your water meets and exceeds all regulatory requirements and your expectations for unquestionable quality, reliability and safety. Our water source is the St. Clair River, one of the most beautiful rivers in the world. This freshwater, swift flowing river flows from the mouth of Lake Huron and passes the water filtration plant on its way to Lake Erie.  Great Lakes water is the most beautiful and cleanest water in the Northern Hemisphere.
