Water Watch

About 75% of the District's water supply originates from rainfall on our Mt. Tamalpais watershed and in the grassy hills of west Marin, flowing into the District’s seven reservoirs. 

The District also supplements its supply with water from the Sonoma County Water Agency (SCWA), which comes from the Russian River system in Sonoma County. The Russian River water supply originates from rainfall that flows into Lake Sonoma and Lake Mendocino.
