Lagoon Raised to Summer Levels
For Immediate Release: March 17, 2014
Contact: Public Works Maintenance Superintendent Nicholas Leonoudakis, (650) 286-3551,

The Foster City Public Works Department will be raising the water level in the Foster City Lagoon by approximately 6-8 inches from winter levels to summer levels during the week of March 17, 2014.  

The water level will usually be maintained between 1 to 2 feet from the level of elevation 100, which is the design height of most lagoon bulkheads. The water level will generally be higher on weekends and holidays and lower during midweek. This is done to promote maximum water exchange in the lagoon. The level will be lowered, if needed, during rainy days or in anticipation of a major storm.

If you have any questions about the lagoon levels or Lagoon Management Plan, please contact Public Works Maintenance Superintendent Nicholas Leonoudakis at (650) 286-3551 or
