A new study has indicated that homes in local areas could be threatened by shallowly sited groundwater that could rise in the future. The groundwater could damage underground electrical and sewage lines and the foundations of houses, can expose contaminants and can worsen flooding during storms. Marin City, Corte Madera, San Rafael and Novato are among the communities most at risk.
