Water Conservation

water-conservationThere has been much discussion about securing the water future for Marin County. MMWD is our main water district and through them we procure 75% of our water from our local watershed.  We import 25% of our water from outside the county.  The average MMWD client uses 140 gallons of water per person, per day.

In 2009 Sustainable Fairfax received a grant for a Water Conservation Project with the Marin Municipal Water District (MMWD).


  • We surveyed the town to assess and offer behavioral and technological ways to reduce water use.
  • Our goal is to create a Model for community inspired Water Conservation for residences, schools and businesses.
