Flood Picture

Flood Zone 9

San Anselmo is in Flood Zone 9 of the Marin County Flood Control and Water Conservation District.  The District was formed in 1955 by an Act of the State Legislature. The Board of Supervisors sits as the elected board of the District and the District is staffed by the Marin County Department of Public Works.
The boundaries of the District are contiguous with those of Marin County and eight "zones" have been established to address specific watershed flooding problems. Each zone has an Advisory Board of 5 to 7 residents, who are ultimately appointed by the Board of Supervisors. These advisory boards review zone budgets and master plans and advise the Board of Supervisors on these matters.  Councilmember John Wright serves as San Anselmo’s representative to the Flood Zone 9 Advisory Board.
Flood Zone 9 is integrally involved in administering our flood mitigation program financed by the flood fee.  If you would like to subscribe to receive email updates for upcoming meetings and events of the Flood Zone 9 Ross Valley Flood Protection and Watershed Program, please go to

San Anselmo
Organic Waste Cart

New Organic Waste Program for 2020

Starting on January 1, 2020, residents of incorporated San Anselmo can opt to receive a second or third green waste cart as part of their basic bundled service package with Marin Sanitary Service. Customers who want the third green waste cart must make the request by December 31, 2020 to be able to have the third cart as part of their basic bundled service. After that date, customers will be entitled to two green waste carts as part of the bundled service, and will be able to rent additional carts (up to 4).
In summary, customers who have secured up to three (3) total green waste carts before December 31, 2020, will keep this secured level of service at no additional cost until the customer terminates service with the Marin Sanitary Service. This change is part of the new program for the collection of organic waste (food and yard waste). Beginning in 2020, Marin Sanitary will no longer collect organic waste from customer-owned cans. You will be receiving more information from MSS and the Town throughout 2020 on this program change.
It is important to note that these changes are for customers in the incorporated town of San Anselmo. This does not apply to customers who may have a San Anselmo address but reside in unincorporated Marin County, such as residents of Sleepy Hollow.
