Green, Green Grass!

The grass at Eastwood Park is thriving. Thank you for giving it a chance to grow. And of course we are so grateful for the rain and sun that helped grow so green!

Save the date for Earth Day on April 22nd - we will be cleaning and caring for Eastwood Park as well as the Community Center and Cabin grounds. It's a great opportunity to spend time in the lush, spring sunshine and say "hello" to neighbors. More details to follow in upcoming newsletters.
Enjoy the beautiful weekend!
LRAD Monthly Siren Testing For April 2023

Emergency testing of the notification system is actively underway on the first Saturday of the month at 12 noon within the City of Mill Valley, Tam Valley, Strawberry and Sausalito.

Long Range Acoustic Device (LRAD) emergency alert systems are unique in that they can project both siren and voice recordings to alert and inform community members during a large-scale disaster. 

The "Did you hear it ?" (DYHI) campaign was developed to tap the abundant information available about the on-going monthly testing from the people who experience them. By taking advantage of the vast number of Internet users, we can get a more complete description of what people experienced, the effects of the monthly testing, and the extent of missing coverage. And best of all, with your help we can do so almost instantly.

Nothing But Toilet Paper!

Plugged sewers and blocked pumps cause backups in the sewer system and it can happen at any time- 2:00am, weekends, holidays, etc. TCSD sewer crew works tirelessly to prevent it- preforming video inspections of the sewer, finding spots where tree roots have started to grow in and kitchen oil and fat have accumulated to form a partial blockage that could have caused an overflow into the homes and creek nearby. 

What can you do to help? 

  • Flush no items other than toilet paper. Even items marketed as flushable, are not compatible for the sewer system.

  • Fats, Oil and Grease (F.O.G) do not go down the kitchen drain. Make sure to sop up oil or fat from your pans with a paper towel and throw it in your green cart. For larger amounts, collect your cooking oil and call TCSD to make a drop-off appointment at (415) 388-6393.
