• Chamber meets with MMWD officials to assess relationship with our business community

    March 16, 2016

    We met in February with Marin Municipal Water District and key community members regarding possible solutions to allocations and entitlements. The idea of a Cap & Trade program was introduced, which could lead to more efficient allocations and more favorable rates, especially in times of conservation.

    Monthly automatic meter reads were introduced as a possible means to help identify leaks and better determine usage. Prohibitive items, such as unclear grey water system requirements and the mandate to upgrade fire sprinkler systems with a certain level of building upgrade were identified as key obstacles for business owners to upgrading a building.

    A new, streamlined means of business customers contacting MMWD about permit requirements and services was also discussed.
