Project Summary

The San Anselmo (Nokomis and Meadowcroft) Sewer Improvements will replace old or outdated system infrastructure and enhance local wastewater system reliability and efficiency. Construction to improve system performance during wet weather will involve rehabilitation of 3,300 linear feet (LF) of sewer pipeline ranging in size from 18 to 24 inches in diameter and work on associated structures. The project is being completed at a cost of $4 million.

Project Coordination

RVSD, Marin Municipal Water District (MMWD), the Town of San Anselmo and Marin County are coordinating to reduce construction impacts from other projects in the Morningside and Brookside neighborhoods this summer. MMWD is replacing waterlines on Butterfield Rd. from Sir Francis Drake Blvd. to Kenrick Ave. RVSD plans to follow with sewer construction on Butterfield Rd. in summer 2019 and summer 2020.

These projects will rehabilitate critical water and sewer infrastructure and add an easterly sidewalk from Sir Francis Drake Blvd. to Brookside Elementary School, provide road sealing from Sir Francis Drake Blvd. to Kenrick Ave., and widen a narrow section of The Alameda to provide a safer route and enhance fire and police access.
