Marin Municipal Water District Lifts Sprinkler Ban

Most Marin County residents will once again be allowed to turn on their sprinklers following a nearly three-month ban.

The Marin Municipal Water District board voted unanimously on Tuesday to allow the district’s 191,000 residents in central and southern Marin to use outdoor sprinklers and drip irrigation two days per week. Outdoor irrigation using potable water supplies had been banned since Dec. 1 in response to the drought.
