NOVATO RECYCLED WATER EXPANSION PROGRAM
North Marin Water District (NMWD) is pursuing both short-term and long-term improvements to water supply reliability in Novato. Expanding the use of recycled water as a sustainable local water supply in Novato is one such improvement. NMWD has identified various properties with large landscape areas in Novato as potential sites to use recycled water for irrigation and has completed the installation of a new pipeline for delivery of recycled water in the North, and South Service Areas of Novato (See Maps linked below). Construction work on the Central Service Area is tentatively scheduled to start in 2018. To help inform and update you on the progress of the Novato Recycled Water Expansion Program, NMWD has produced a series of informational materials which include:
Novato Recycled Water Program Summary providing a general overview of the program and general information on recycled water

AQUEDUCT ENERGY EFFICIENCY PROJECT
Approximately 4 miles of the existing North Marin Aqueduct from Kastania Pump Station to Redwood Landfill requires relocation to accommodate the CalTrans US Highway 101 Marin-Sonoma Narrows Widening Project.
NMWD’s AEE Project is enlarging the North Marin Aqueduct coincident with the required relocation to eliminate the need for the Kastania Pump Station and the resulting energy demand, associated green house gases and costs.
