Efficient Water Management
Marin is currently drought free due to the recent abnormally high rains (Atmospheric Rivers). Yet drought - or at least a long hot and dry summer - are predicted, and we don't know what will happen this season in Marin.
Efficient water usage is as critical during our rainy season as during our recent drought -- efficient water management is a constant California commitment.
Learn more on MMWD's Drought Information page. Thank you for your cooperation!
