Capital Improvement Program
Ross Valley Sanitary District was established in 1899. The RVSD service area includes Fairfax, San Anselmo, Ross, Larkspur, Bon Air, Sleepy Hollow, Kentfield, Kent Woodlands, Oak Manor and Greenbrae.
The RVSD infrastructure that we operate and maintain in your neighborhood includes a portion of the 200 miles of sewer pipelines and 19 pump stations which collect, pump and transport approximately 4 million gallons of wastewater per day to the Central Marin Sanitation Agency for treatment. Much of this infrastructure is old or outdated.
The Capital Improvement Program (CIP) consists of construction projects to replace outdated system infrastructure and enhance local wastewater system reliability and efficiency.

• Protect public health and the environment by reducing the risk of sewer overflows.
• Continue working with the community to replace the 75% of outdated sewer laterals that still remain.
Since 2013, RVSD has been working to rehabilitate underground wastewater pipelines through a construction program that is spread out over more than 34 miles of road throughout Ross Valley.

You can also go to the project pages listed on the left of this page for more information about individual CIP projects that are under construction or scheduled to begin soon. Check this page regularly for updates to schedules and other information.
As with any construction project, you can expect noise, dust, some traffic lane closures and detours, parking restrictions, travel delays, and in some cases night-time work near the work sites during construction activity. We work to ensure that mail and package delivery to construction areas is not interrupted and that local and emergency access is maintained at all times.
RVSD APPRECIATES your patience as we fulfill our commitment to making strategic long-term infrastructure improvements.
