This month Marin Municipal Water District (MMWD) will replace 300 feet of dated and worn pipeline in Mill Valley on Miller Avenue, from Willow Street to Reed Street. Construction is scheduled to last through July 2017. Both the contractor, Maggiora & Ghilotti, Inc., and MMWD will make every effort to minimize traffic disruptions during construction. This project aligns with MMWD’s five-year strategic plan to improve water supply resiliency and maintain facilities and equipment sufficiently.
Customers with questions about the project can contact MMWD Design & Engineering Manager Jeff Ohmart at 415-945-1574 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
MMWD is Marin County’s largest provider of drinking water, serving a population of 187,500 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.
