MMWD to Replace 100-year-old Pipeline in Mill Valley

Laverne PRP

Beginning late August, MMWD will install new pipeline in Laverne Avenue in unincorporated Mill Valley. The new water pipeline will replace leak-prone 6-inch pipe installed in 1917. This pipeline replacement project is being coordinated with the County of Marin’s upcoming paving project. MMWD expects the pipeline replacement project to be completed in December 2017.

MMWD and the contractor, W.R. Forde Associates, will take all measures possible to minimize inconveniences associated with this project, including noise and traffic delays.

For questions about this project, contact MMWD Construction Management Supervisor Mike Maxey (415) 945-1570,

MMWD is Marin County’s largest provider of drinking water, serving a population of 189,900 in a 147-square-mile area of south and central Marin County. The district owns and manages 21,600 acres of watershed land on Mt. Tamalpais and in west Marin. The primary source of water supply is rainfall captured in seven reservoirs, providing 75 percent of the water consumed each year. The remaining 25 percent is imported annually from the Russian River through an agreement with the Sonoma County Water Agency. MMWD also operates its own recycled water system. District operations are financed primarily by revenue from the sale of water.
