On December 11, MMWD hosted a well-attended public workshop at Corte Madera Community Center on the topic of ebikes (electric bicycles) on the Mt. Tamalpais Watershed. The event included table topics and a public comment period. Thank you to everyone who took the time to attend and be part of the discussion. We’ll continue to provide updates as the conversation moves forward. For additional background,

Lagunitas Spawner Survey Underway
Our annual spawner survey is underway, and it’s been an interesting year for salmon in Lagunitas Creek! To find out what our biologists have observed, read today's spawner update from MMWD Aquatic Ecologist Eric Ettlinger. You can also find his November 28 and December 13 updates on our blog.
Monitoring programs such as the spawner survey are part of MMWD’s efforts to ensure the health of Lagunitas Creek. In addition to providing water for MMWD customers, the creek provides some of the region’s best remaining habitat for endangered coho salmon and other species.
Watch: Pipeline Project Update
Right now we are installing nearly 3,500 feet of new pipeline on San Francisco Boulevard in the Town of San Anselmo. The new pipe, which is replacing pipe installed in 1951, will increase reliability and fire flow to community. Watch our video update for more project details.
Rains, Reservoirs About Average for This Time of Year
After a slow start to this rainy season, recent storms have brought us near to normal for this time of year: The 13.83 inches measured at Lake Lagunitas through December 20 is about 87% of average for this date. Our reservoir storage is also comfortable at 72% of capacity and almost 100% of average. Visit our Water Watch page for daily rainfall and reservoir updates.
