Marin Municipal Water District

Marin Municipal Water District

The Marin Municipal Water District (MMWD) is the government agency that provides drinking water to southern and central Marin County, California. Chartered in 1912, it became California's first municipal water district.

The District's seven reservoirs in Marin County provide about 75% of the water it uses:

• Alpine Lake, Cataract Falls
Bon Tempe Lake
• Kent Lake
Lake Lagunitas
• Nicasio Reservoir
Phoenix Lake
Soulajule Reservoir

Hikers may choose from 130 miles of trails and unpaved roads, many of which connect with adjacent national and state parks and county open space district lands.

To minimize human disturbance to sensitive habitat and to protect listed and endangered species that inhabit district land, please stay on authorized routes.

To protect natural resources and to ensure a pleasant watershed experience for visitors MMWD asks that for all canine companions, you “love ‘em and leash ‘em”.

Dogs are permitted on district lands only when restrained by a leash and under the control of the owner. Aggressive canines have been known to intimidate wildlife, endanger newborn deer, disturb aquatic habitat and disrupt the tranquility of other watershed visitors.

Most of the MMWD Mt. Tamalpais Watershed is within the boundary of the Mt. Tamalpais State Game Refuge and is governed by California Department of Fish and Wildlife and MMWD rules and regulations.

The main purpose of the refuge system is to ensure survival of wildlife by providing suitable cover, food and protection for fish and wildlife from humans and their furry friends.
