***Freeze Alert!*** - Protect your outdoor water pipes from winter freeze! Wrap exposed pipe with insulation and avoid inconvenient and costly breaks. Measure the pipe diameter and determine the total length of insulation needed to purchase the correct size and quantity. Copper wire or plastic wire ties work best to keep the insulation in place. You will be able to get all the supplies you may need at your local Marin hardware store!

***North Marin Water District Flushing Program*** - North Marin Water District will begin its annual water main flushing program starting Monday, January 14th 2019. This is a standard practice to ensure good quality water and help maintain a chlorine residual (disinfectant) to prevent bacteria growth in the pipelines. Customers may temporarily experience low water pressure or a slight, but harmless color in their water when the flushing is conducted in their neighborhood. Flushing is performed in the winter months when there is sufficient water supply for the task. The 2019 program has been developed to use the least amount of water to maintain good water quality

***AMI is Coming to NMWD – To improve water use efficiency as well as meter reading efficiency, accuracy, and customer service, NMWD has implemented an Advanced Meter Information (AMI) project. The initial pilot project included meter upgrades for approximately 200 customers throughout NMWD’s Novato service territory. With the AMI system, digital meter data is sent securely to NMWD headquarters via radio. This technology provides early leak detection and enables customers to view near real-time water use information online, thereby gaining a better understanding of water use patterns. We are happy to report that the initial effectiveness of the AMI system in the pilot project has been successful and full deployment is expected to be finished by early 2019. As part of this AMI system, a new online payment and Water Smart Portal has been developed. We encourage you to sign in on the portal and get acquainted with the system by clicking the Online Bill Pay & Water Smart button on the right side of this page.

NMWD Recycled Water Central Expansion Project

North Marin Water District is expanding the recycled water system into the Central Service Area of Novato.  This expansion in cooperation with Novato Sanitary District, will extend from Novato Sanitary District’s treatment plant to Marin Country Club, serving approximately 40 large landscape customers and 3 car washes along the way. This project has been designed to reach the maximum number of large landscape users and will offset approximately 65 million gallons of potable water per year. See link below for Recycled Water Central Service Area Construction project updates.
