Beginning early August, MMWD will install new pipelines in the City of San Rafael’s Sun Valley neighborhood. We will replace pipelines installed as early as 1916 on California Street, Center Street, Eye Street and Forbes Avenue. The new pipes will be better able to withstand an earthquake and also improve fire flow capacity.
MMWD and the contractor, D&D Pipelines, Inc., will take all measures possible to minimize inconveniences associated with this project, including noise and traffic delays.
For questions about this project, contact the MMWD Construction Management group at (415) 945-1560.
MMWD is Marin County’s largest provider of drinking water, serving a population of 189,900 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.
