MMWD will install new pipelines in various streets including Butterfield Road, Willow Way, Fairview Court, Rosemont Avenue, Arroyo Avenue, and Sir Francis Drake Boulevard in the Town of San Anselmo. The new water pipelines will replace leak-prone cast iron pipe installed in 1928 and will be better able to withstand an earthquake as well as improves fire flow capacity. This project is being coordinated with the Town of San Anselmo’s upcoming pavement restoration project. Work will take place from late April to September 2018.
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, contact the MMWD Construction Management Group at 415-945-1560.
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.
