Phoenix Lake’s spillway is now overflowing after recent rains this February and March.
Recent rains have quelled the mandatory rationing proposal by the Marin Municipal Water District. After the storm on the fifth thru the ninth of February, and 15 inches of rain, the Marin reservoir system increased from 53 percent capacity to 66 percent.
Marin’s reservoir system is now above 78 percent capacity, and at close to normal for this time of year. Although not much rain is in the forecast, the reservoir system has enough water to last Marin’s residents until next winter if necessary.

Over the years, Marin has unquestionably remained a special place for some of the world’s most successful people and brightest stars. In a most recent report published by the S.F. Gate, Marin County surpassed the hefty sum of $120,000 per joint income tax return. This figure, seemingly high to most people, fails to represent the true virtuosity of Marin’s wealth.
