Start of Construction Activities

You will start to see work this week primarily on Rowland Blvd and Redwood Blvd. There may also be some work taking place on S Novato Blvd towards the end of the week. Starting Tuesday crews will be potholing the existing utilities. This means there will be a small crew digging to find the existing utilities so we know the depth and location of each utility before installing the new pipeline. This helps avoid damage to existing infrastructure and avoid timely delays during construction. Below are 2 maps to show where work will be taking place. We anticipate crews on Rowland Blvd and Redwood Blvd starting Tuesday the 8th through Thursday the 10th. Then if everything goes according to plan, they will start on S Novato Blvd on Friday the 11th. Stay tuned for more updates.

North-Central Service Area Map

The North Marin Water District (the District) has important improvements to the recycled water distribution system coming soon in your neighborhood. In addition to offsetting potable water supply, water recycling provides a sustainable drought-proof water source and promotes other environmental benefits such as preserving a healthy San Francisco Bay and surrounding wetland habitats.

During an earlier phase, projects in the North and South Service Area were successfully completed in 2012.  The Central Service Area Projects (this phase) include the installation of new recycled water mains and services within the public right-of-way, rehabilitation of an existing water tank and retrofitting existing large landscape irrigation and car wash sites for recycled water use. Collectively, these projects will help reduce potable water consumption by approximately 200 million gallons per year.
