For Immediate Release: May 23, 2016
Contact: 'Andra Lorenz, Management Analyst, (650) 286-3215, alorenz@fostercity.org
In compliance with state law, the Estero Municipal Improvement District (EMID) is reviewing and updating its Urban Water Management Plan (Plan). The State of California requires that this plan be updated every five years. The Plan was last updated in 2011 and must be adopted by the EMID Board of Directors by July 2016.

The District encourages its water customers to participate in the review process. Proposed revisions to the Plan are available for public review at City Hall, 610 Foster City Boulevard and the Foster City Public Library, 1000 East Hillsdale Boulevard, as well as on the City’s website at www.fostercity.org. A public hearing is scheduled to be held on June 6, 2016.

The EMID provides potable water to residents in Foster City and the Mariners Island area of San Mateo. The Urban Water Management Plan outlines the EMID’s projections for the amount of water that will be supplied, how it will be used and how the District plans to achieve a conservation goal of 20% water use reduction by 2020. As part of the process of preparing the Urban Water Management Plan, the EMID is also updating its Water Shortage Contingency Plan to mitigate future water supply shortages.
