Marin Water is proud of its rich history as California’s first municipal water district, established in 1912. With that distinction, comes the responsibility to address aging infrastructure. Many of the district's pipelines are more than 100 years old. The Capital Improvement Program responsibly replaces aging pipelines with pipes that better withstand earthquakes and have greater overall reliability.

Active Construction Projects
Fire & Fuels Management
With nearly 22,000 acres of public land within the Mount Tamalpais Watershed and the hills of west Marin under our care, the District continues to engage in critical vegetation management work. The ongoing, strategic efforts follow the District's Biodiversity, Fire and Fuels Integrated Plan, which is designed to not only reduce the risk of devastating wildfire, but also bolster ecological health through the removal of invasive plant species.
San Geronimo Treatment Plant Emergency Generator Project
Meant to save ratepayer money while enhancing water supply resiliency by enabling the District to produce treated water even in cases of power shutoffs or outages, this project involves the installation of three large, permanent generators at the District’s largest treatment plant. The generators are in place, and were able to be operated manually in January during storm-related outages. But further work, including automation processes, is needed to complete this important project.
