Consolidation Information

Consolidating Ross Valley Sanitary District with its neighboring sewer agencies in Corte Madera and San Rafael has been discussed for many years. Both the Governor and the Marin Grand Jury have recommended that communities consider the consolidation of their special districts and other agencies that provide such services as police, fire, sanitation and more.

As a public agency that is committed to serving its ratepayers' interests, the Ross Valley Sanitary District hired an independent firm to provide our community with an unbiased financial analysis of various consolidation scenarios. While there have been several consolidation studies conducted over the years, there has never been a study that objectively focuses on the financial impact on ratepayers.

If you are interested in the question of consolidation, these documents can provide a overview of the concept as it applies to the sanitary/sanitation districts of Central Marin.
