As an essential service, RVSD continues to maintain daily operations and maintenance of approximately 200 miles of collection sewer lines and 19 pumping stations, as well as various capital projects which are essential and must continue during this pandemic.

Our vital sewer infrastructure collects, pumps, and transports approximately four million gallons of wastewater per day to the Central Marin Sanitation Agency for treatment before discharge to San Francisco Bay. 

Our number one priority during this unprecedented time continues to focus on protecting public health and the environment while also respecting the Governor’s Orders, including social distancing, personal protective equipment, and frequently washing our hands.

If you have a private property sewer emergency please click here to check the California Department of Consumer Affairs Contractors State License Board (CSLB) for information before you hire a plumbing contractor. Make sure any plumber you hire for a private property sewer emergency is familiar with District policies and programs.

Please note that Smoke Testing is conducted by RVSD throughout the community to help detect leaks in the pipes. Regular smoke testing is not a cause for concern.

Thank you! Your action helps us protect the environment.
