San Anselmo (Nokomis and Meadowcroft) Sewer Improvements

FY 2016/17 Gravity Sewer Improvements 

Project Schedule

Mobilize:      Summer 2018

Complete:  February 2019



January 16, 2019 Update

Sewer bypass operations are in place with large pumps at Morningside/Broadmoor and Broadmoor/Sir Francis Drake Blvd in the event of future storms.  Bypass pumping equipment is anticipated to remain in place until wet weather ends.

Should the bypass pumping equipment need to be used:

  • Wet-weather bypass pumping will occur during dates/hours as posted here.
  • Broadmoor Ave will be closed (as-needed) from Sir Francis Drake Blvd to Morningside.
  • The pumps are quieter than those previously used.
  • Standby equipment will be parked in the area (as-needed) to assist as necessary.
  • NO PARKING signs will be posted on Broadmoor (as-needed) to provide space for the standby equipment.
  • Closure of Broadmoor from Sir Francis Drake Blvd to Meadowcroft may be necessary (as-needed) to accommodate the sewer bypass operations.
  • We apologize in advance for any inconvenience caused.

Sewer pipeline construction on Broadmoor Ave (between Sir Francis Drake Blvd and Morningside Dr) is weather dependent and anticipated to be complete in February.

Work hours, road and sidewalk closures during the time frame above will take place Monday - Friday, from 8 AM to 5 PM. This schedule is weather dependent and subject to change. Notification will be provided if additional changes need to occur.

The following traffic and sidewalk closures will be in effect during construction:

  • Broadmoor Ave (from Sir Francis Drake Blvd to Morningside Dr).
  • One eastbound lane of Sir Francis Drake Blvd at Sierra Ave (adjacent to the sidewalk).
  • The southerly sidewalk on Sir Francis Drake Blvd (from Sierra Ave to Ash Ave).
  • Please see the December 21 Construction Notice below for more information.

Project Summary

The San Anselmo (Nokomis and Meadowcroft) Sewer Improvements will replace old or outdated system infrastructure and enhance local wastewater system reliability and efficiency. Construction to improve system performance during wet weather will involve rehabilitation of 3,300 linear feet (LF) of sewer pipeline ranging in size from 18 to 24 inches in diameter and work on associated structures. The project is being completed at a cost of $4 million.

Project Coordination

RVSD, Marin Municipal Water District (MMWD), the Town of San Anselmo and Marin County are coordinating to reduce construction impacts from other projects in the Morningside and Brookside neighborhoods this summer. MMWD is replacing waterlines on Butterfield Rd. from Sir Francis Drake Blvd. to Kenrick Ave. RVSD plans to follow with sewer construction on Butterfield Rd. in summer 2019 and summer 2020.

These projects will rehabilitate critical water and sewer infrastructure and add an easterly sidewalk from Sir Francis Drake Blvd. to Brookside Elementary School, provide road sealing from Sir Francis Drake Blvd. to Kenrick Ave., and widen a narrow section of The Alameda to provide a safer route and enhance fire and police access.

Project Construction Will Include

  • Sanitary sewer replacements on public and private property.
  • Sewer pipeline rehabilitation via open-cut removal and replacement (~2,170 LF), pipe reaming (~440 LF), pipe bursting (~350 LF) and cured-in-place pipe lining methods (~350 LF on Sycamore), with bypass pumping of sanitary sewer flow.
  • Excavation and backfill, shoring, saw cutting and lateral replacement.
  • Pipe and manhole repairs.
  • Pavement restoration.

What You Can Expect

Please expect noise, dust, lane closures and detours, parking restrictions, travel delays, and night-time work near the work sites during construction activity. Mail and package delivery to these areas will not be interrupted. Local and emergency access will be maintained at all times.

  • Noise, Dust, Lane Closures and Detours, Restricted Parking, Travel Delays, Night-Time Work
