***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.

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.
