Stinson Beach County Water District Overview

The Stinson Beach County Water District (SBCWD) was formed in 1962 and encompasses an approximate 10.0 square mile jurisdictional boundary along Marin County’s western shoreline. Governance is provided by a five-member board with members directly elected by registered voters to serve staggered four year terms. Access to SBCWD’s jurisdictional boundary is primarily tied to Shoreline Highway (State Highway 1). The community is approximately 11 miles from the nearest incorporated town, Mill Valley, and lies within the Bolinas-Stinson Beach Elementary and Tamalpais Union High School Districts. Read more...
