Marin Water declares initial stages of drought and asks customers to conserve

With low rainfall and reservoir storage levels, Marin Water’s Board of Directors approved a resolution adopting initial drought conservation actions. The resolution outlines voluntary conservation actions for the district’s customers to reduce water use in the months ahead. 

To preserve the limited water supply, customers are asked to voluntary turn off irrigation systems. If necessary, water only by hand no more than three days a week. Adding compost and mulch to gardens, replacing lawns with water-efficient landscaping, and installing smart irrigation controllers are also recommended. The district offers free water-efficient faucet aerators, showerheads, and shutoff nozzles for hoses, as well as rebates for lawn replacements, irrigation controllers, and graywater systems.
