City Lowers Lagoon to Winter Levels
For Immediate Release: October 21, 2016
Contact: Jack Schulze, Public Works Maintenance Superintendent, (650) 286-3543,

The Foster City Public Works Department will lower the water level in the Foster City Lagoon by approximately 6-8 inches from summer levels to winter levels during the week of November 14, 2016.

The City's Lagoon Management Plan sets standard lagoon water levels for Winter and Summer periods. The lagoon level is lowered in the Winter in order to prepare to accept additional storm water associated with frequent Winter storms. In the Summer, levels are raised to accommodate recreational uses of the lagoon waterway. However, if a major storm is predicted, the lagoon level may be lowered in preparation for the storm at anytime of year.

If you have any questions about the lagoon levels or Lagoon Management Plan, please contact Public Works Maintenance Superintendent Jack Schulze at (650) 286-3543 or
