Update on State Water Conservation Regulations for 2017

This year, rainfall is well above average and all of the water supply reservoirs supplying Novato (Stafford Lake, Lake Sonoma and Lake Mendocino) reached full capacity.  Governor Brown has declared an end to the State-wide drought emergency.  Novato water customers did a great job conserving water during the State imposed mandatory water use restrictions.  Thank You!  Since 2015, Novato water production has continually met the State mandated community-wide reduction levels compared to the same periods in 2013.  The end of the drought doesn’t mean the end of water use restrictions and the State will continue to require some “common sense” water use prohibitions (see link below).  NMWD asks that you remain diligent in using water efficiently as we can likely expect further State mandates to reduce water use in the future. (Summary of Novato Water Use Prohibitions 2017)

Novato Water Rate Increase

A 5% water rate increase effective June 1, 2017 was approved by the District Board of Directors at its May 16, 2017 meeting. You can view the impact of the proposed increase to your individual water cost by using the NMWD annual water cost calculator below.

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.
