San Rafael is a small city north of San Francisco in Marin County. The city exhibits all the stresses of the Bay Area metropolis, because it is one of the vital infrastructural, logistical, and workforce centers of the region. It is threatened by flooding today. It is also threatened by the old paradigm of . After 25 years of advising Bay Area residents on land use policy, agricultural diversification and water quality issues, Ellie Rilla, UC Cooperative Extension advisor in Marin County will retire on June “The best thing about Ellie is that she is inspirational,” said Marin County rancher Sally Gale.
Future work will explore the coupling of high‐resolution groundwater and surface water models to simulate the impacts of various time scales of sea level changes on the groundwater table and to more accurately assess the combined threat of flooding from marine and groundwater sources. The MBNMS Submerged Cultural Resources Study of (Smith and Hunter ) includes a database of reported vessel losses that occurred within the jurisdiction, or adjacent to the boundaries, of the Monterey Bay National Marine wrecking, vessels are known to drift at least 15 miles (e.g., Point Arena).Therefore, losses located just to the north of the sanctuary in Marin.
Water Conservation Plan Summary Marin County Parks is responsible for over 76 properties not including the open space preserves. Of t 40 have developed landscapes that staff maintains. Parks staff has initiated water conservation measures over the past two years to maintain the health of the landscape during the ongoing drought. Marin Municipal Water District (MMWD) is located in Marin County, California, just over the Golden Gate Bridge, north of San Francisco. Marin County is a dynamic community of involved residents who enjoy a high quality of life marked by beautiful beaches, groves of redwoods and oaks, rolling foothills, and scenic on: Nellen Avenue Corte Madera,

Information on rainwater capture and management, rain gardens, Low Impact Development, water conservation and more can be found.
Every year, MMWD conducts more thanwater quality and process control tests to ensure your water is safe to drink. MMWD looks for minerals, metals, salts and other similar chemicals.
MMWD also tests for bacteria, herbicides, pesticides, endocrine disruptors, and industrial chemicals. develop test procedures for water quality analysis.
As described in detail in the grant agreement, the project goals can be succinctly summarized as follows: 1. Adapt the original PhyloChip to give it the capability to conduct a microbial census of recreational waters. Pathogen specific primers and probes on the microarray were to be validated.
LOOK UP AS you enter Marin Municipal Water District’s Water Quality Laboratory and you’ll see where most of Marin County’s water comes from: Mount Tamalpais.
On the day I visited, the peak was wrapped in a fluffy cloud muffler; the autumn’s first storm had just deposited a much-needed contribution to the seven reservoirs up there. The group's two books, "Bay Area Gardening" and "Gardening Among Friends," are available at local book stores.

Marin County Sources Nearly 75% of MMWD's water comes f acres of protected watershed on Mt. Tamalpais, and in the grassy hills of west Marin. These areas are mostly forested MMWD-owned lands and other undeveloped rural lands. Rainfall from these watershed flows into MMWD's seven reservoirs.
Water from these reservoirs is treated and filtered before delivery. Water from the Carlsbad Desalination Plant costs between $2, and $2, per acre-foot, according to the San Diego County Water Authority, which has a contract to buy water from the plant.
