Project Description

The North Marin Water District has submitted a Coastal Permit application for the replacement of a previously destroyed 25,000-gallon water storage tank and an existing 50,000-gallon water tank with a new 125,000-gallon concrete water storage tank and associated gate valves, and overflow drain vaults on the 5,500 square-foot lot in Inverness. The proposed water tank is approximately 34 feet in diameter and would reach a maximum height of 20 feet, 8 inches above surrounding grade. The new tank is proposed to be located approximately 22 feet, 6 inches from the western front property line, 5 feet from the northern side property line, 22 feet, 6 inches from the southern side property line, and 22 feet from the western rear property line. Proposed building materials include earth toned, reinforced concrete proposed to mimic the visual appearance and patina of the existing redwood tank. The proposed water tank would modernize the water treatment and storage capacity but would not increase the number of properties served by North Marin Water District facilities.

Coastal Permit approval is required pursuant to interim Marin County Code Section 22.56.040I because the project entails improvements to a property located in a Coastal zoning district not otherwise exempt from Coastal Permit requirements.
