FY 2022/2023 Gravity Sewer Improvements Project (#953)

On July 8, 2022, an Initial Study/Mitigated Negative Declaration (IS/MND) for the FY 22/23 Gravity Sewers Improvements Project (#953) (Project) was released for public and agency review. The Project entails the construction and rehabilitation, within the existing alignment, of sanitary sewer mains and related appurtenances within the unincorporated community of Sleepy Hollow, the Town of San Anselmo, the unincorporated communities of Greenbrae and Kentfield, and the City of Larkspur, located within the County of Marin. The Project would include rehabilitation of sanitary sewer mains in the following areas: (1) Sleepy Hollow: Replacing approximately 1,554 linear ft of existing 6-inch (in.) vitrified clay pipe (VCP) with 8-in. high-density polyethylene (HDPE) pipe via pipe bursting methods. No work would occur on the bridge located at Deer Hollow Road, (2) San Anselmo: Replacing approximately 2,125 linear ft of existing 6-in. VCP with 8-in. HDPE pipe via pipe bursting methods; (3) Greenbrae: Replacing approximately 1,219 linear ft of existing 6-in. VCP with 8-in. HDPE pipe via pipe bursting methods; (4) Kentfield: Replacing approximately 1,575 linear ft of existing 6-in. VCP with 8-in. HDPE pipe via pipe bursting methods and; (5) Larkspur: Replacing approximately 120 linear ft of existing 6-in. VCP with 6-in. HDPE pipe via pipe bursting methods.  The primary objective of this Project is to relieve hydraulic and structural deficiencies and reduce groundwater infiltration with aging RVSD infrastructure. The public review and commenting period of the IS/MND ends on August 8, 2022. All comments should be sent to Philip Benedetti, Ross Valley Sanitary District, 2960 Kerner Boulevard, San Rafael, California 94901 or emailed to Administrative Staff.

Flow Monitoring Study - October 10, 2014

The purpose of the Study was to collect wastewater flow, rainfall, and water quality data that can be used to validate the scope and size of near-term hydraulic capacity improvement projects and evaluate the effect of recent system improvement projects on wastewater flow.

Sewer System Management Plan Documents

Describes the district's goals, organizational structure, operations, emergency response plans and more.

Infrastructure Asset Management Plan Documents

Using the Asset Management approach, this plan introduces a risk assessment methodology for identifying gravity sewer lines for which failure presents the highest risk to the District and the communities it serves. It makes recommendations for specific project areas based on the currently know condition assessments.
