I am pleased to introduce this column, which is the Marin Municipal Water District’s leap into the blogosphere. Think Blue Marin will serve as a conversation forum about all things water in South and Central Marin—water supplies, conservation, new projects, watershed management, etc. “Think Blue” gives us the mechanism to have an online dialogue with you about these important topics.
We all know that California is again confronted with constraints on our water supplies. Water is a basic and essential natural resource that makes life possible for all of us and the creatures with whom we share this beautiful county. Our mission at MMWD has always been to provide residents of southern and central Marin high-quality drinking water in an environmentally-sound manner. This mission, coupled with our stewardship of Mount Tamalpais and Lagunitas Creek, is more critical than ever.
In this forum, I am looking forward to sharing what we are doing to ensure the reliability and quality of our water supply now and into the future. Other MMWD staff will be contributing to this blog to provide a comprehensive and genuinely interactive information channel. We are thrilled at the opportunity to use this space to talk about smart water use. We are even more excited to hear from you. Please check back often to learn about our programs, our people—to read our stories and to share yours.
Our hope is that by sharing stories, information, insights and opinions, we will together work as a community to protect our water supply.
