Ribbon Cutting for the Camino Alto Pump Station

Thursday, April 19, 2018 - 5:30 pm
Where: The Redwoods, 40 Camino Alto, Mill Valley, CA, 94941

Please join the Sewerage Agency of Southern Marin Board, Mill Valley City Council, and community members from The Redwoods’ Seniors for Peace to mark the completion of the Camino Alto Pump Station.

As part of a $30 million major infrastructure investment, SASM has replaced a critically important sanitary sewer pump station at the corner of Camino Alto and Miller Avenue. 

The pump station serves several thousand Marin County residents and businesses in Mill Valley by pumping an average of 85,000 gallons of sewage to the SASM Treatment Plant every day in dry weather and about 750,000 gal a day during storms. 

The $1.5 million project provided safety and reliability upgrades by converting the existing pump station from a confined space and providing three new submersible pumps, an emergency generator, new electronic control and remote communications systems.

Improvements include new trees and landscaping, an irrigation system, various rock accents, and native mow-free grass. A concrete bench wall has also been installed.  

The Mill Valley Seniors for Peace will perform a song at the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony.

Light refreshments will be served.

Questions may be directed to Linn Walsh, Assistant to the City Manager, at or 415-388-4863.

The Sewerage Agency of Southern Marin (SASM) is a Joint Powers Agency formed in 1979 to consolidate the wastewater collection, treatment, water reclamation and disposal needs of about 29,500 residents in Southern Marin County. Learn more here.
