Miller Avenue and Flooding - What is being done?

Flooding is an important issue in Mill Valley and one we have been working with the County of Marin to conduct both short-term improvements and long-term planning. Here are some resources to learn more:

  1. An article discussing how the City recently obtained more than $1 million in funding from the County of Marin’s Flood Control and Water Conservation District, which will allow the City both to make immediate improvements in one of Mill Valley's most flood-prone areas and to continue its ongoing efforts in developing a City-wide master plan for flood control and drainage. 

    You can find the entire article here.

  2. A Staff Report presented to the City Council in January of this year authorizing the City Manager to advertise the Request for Proposal (RFP) to select a Consultant for preparation of the Flood Control and Drainage Master Plan. 

    The City seeks to prepare a Citywide Flood Control and Storm Drainage Master Plan, with intent of providing an assessment of existing drainage and flood control facilities, defining acceptable risks, and developing solutions for drainage related problems within Mill Valley.

    You can read the Staff Report here.

  3. Regarding the Manzanita Park n’ Ride area, which is outside of City jurisdiction, the Marin County Flood Control and Water Conservation District is working with Caltrans to develop flood reduction strategies for the Manzanita area.
