Water Main Breaks on Tamalpais Road in Fairfax

Service was restored this morning to an estimated 100 to 150 households.


Marin Municipal Water District crews worked late on Christmas night to repair a broken water main in Fairfax, while an estimated 100 to 150 Fairfax households went without water, according to district spokesperson Libby Pischel.

Earlier on Wednesday morning, officials had estimated 300 to 400 people were without water service. 

The break, at 175 Tamalpais Road, was first reported on Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. Police closed part of the road while repairs were made.

Our water was out, luckily we had just finished cooking Christmas dinner and had a great excuse not to do the dishes. A huge THANK YOU to the MMWD workers who were out in miserable weather on Christmas night repairing this break. Good work, folks!

We live on Ridge Road and our water came back at around 6:00 AM. Last night I filled the bathtub and the water was a dingy greenish brown. I hope that doesn't last long, I'm now drinking bottled water.
