Opinion: Water district board vice president makes case for bridge pipeline
We are carefully assessing long-term options like desalination, and weighing a myriad of factors including cost, timing, environmental issues and how much additional water supply each project may provide. During all of this careful consideration, the Board of Directors has not lost the sense of urgency. Reliably providing high-quality water to our customers is our charge, and it is a charge not taken lightly. As we continue to evaluate projects to secure additional water supply, constructing a pipeline across the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge has emerged as a strong option to increase Marin Water’s supply long-term.
