Friends of Corte Madera Creek Watershed
Friends of Corte Madera Creek Watershed is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization founded in 1995 to protect the remaining natural ecosystems of the area, especially those relating to urbanized creeks and wetlands, and to increase the diversity of these ecosystems where possible. They recognize that all activities within a watershed - human and natural - are interconnected, and that a wide range of issues must be addressed to meet their goals.

Water Reuse at RVSD
The District uses recycled water for sewer cleaning, dust control and other activities, using disinfected-23 MPN quality water from the Central Marin Sanitation Agency (CMSA) Truck Fill Station. Using recycled water for various operational activities is environmentally responsible and sustainable in the long term. The volume of recycled water use equals the volume of potable water conserved. Conserving potable water makes more available for human uses of water for health and safety, and environmental uses of water for fish and wildlife habitat in the Lagunitas Creek and Russian River watersheds. The following graph shows Water Reuse achieved by RVSD as it began the program in August 2019 - March 2021. Ongoing water reuse averages over 30,000 gallons per month and is reported each month in our monthly metrics reports found in the Board Agenda Packet, as well as our annual metrics report on the Studies and Reports webpage.
