The water level in the Foster City Lagoon will be raised about 6 to 8 inches to its summer level this week.
The lagoon was previously lowered in November for its winter level, city officials said.
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.
If a major storm is predicted, however, the lagoon level may be lowered in preparation for the storm at any time of year.
