Wastewater Feasibility Study

Assessing wastewater options for public restrooms in Point Reyes Station.

Overview

Point Reyes Station in West Marin is a popular tourist destination. During much of the year, use of public restrooms can exceed capacity. The County owns a 1.8 acre parcel (Mesa Lot) in Point Reyes Station between Toby’s Playground and the old Coast Guard Station, which has been selected for an assessment of the site’s capacity to provide additional public restrooms. This project intends to assess public restrooms needs, including wastewater demand and wastewater treatment alternatives.  Marin County Parks is working with Sherwood Design Engineers on a wastewater feasibility assessment for the Mesa Lot and community outreach.
