Marinites Must Conserve Water Or Pay The Price

Marin Water is instituting penalties for excessive residential water use.

Everyone’s in the same predicament this winter, with lower than normal reservoir levels countywide. Now, Marinites must conserve water or pay the price — literally. New restrictions prohibit excessive use of water and limit irrigation to spot watering by hand. 

A household of four is kept to 65 gallons per person per day; otherwise residents face penalties from $5 to $15 for every 748 gallons used. Learn more on the Marin Water website.
