This month MMWD will begin installing new pipelines at various streets in San Anselmo including Rutherford Avenue and Merced Avenue. The new pipeline will be better able to withstand an earth quake, and will increase fire flow to hydrants. The current piping is over 75 years old.
The contractor, Michael Paul Company, 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 Construction Inspection Supervisor Michael Maxey at 415-945-1570 or Mmaxey@marinwater.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.
