Morgan A. Marler, Sr. Water Treatment Technician

The City of Hillsboro meets or exceeds all KDHE and EPA regulations and our customers expect a high quality water at their taps. Our water treatment plant runs 24 hours a day and we monitor the water going to our customers every minute of every day with several different continual analyzers. It is our goal to always deliver a very high quality water to our customers for a very reasonable price.
