The Sausalito-Marin City Sanitary District (SMCSD) is governed by an elected five member Board of Directors and provides wastewater treatment and disposal service to the City of Sausalito and wastewater collection, treatment and disposal service to Marin City and other unincorporated areas within the District’s boundaries. Treatment and disposal service is also provided on a contract basis to Tamalpais Community Services District (TCSD) and the National Parks Service (Forts Baker, Barry and Cronkhite and Muir Woods National Monument). Treated wastewater is discharged into the deep waters of the central San Francisco Bay.

The District operates and maintains a 1.8 million-gallon per day secondary wastewater treatment plant, ten (10) sewage pump stations, and approximately ten (10) miles of pipelines. Four (4) of these pump stations are operated and maintained for the City of Sausalito on a contract basis. Thirteen (13) full-time employees are employed to accomplish these operations. In addition, the District has an established intern program. Under the intern program, two positions are funded as temporary part-time (non-benefited).
