Summary

 

The City of Burlingame receives all of its water supply from six SF RWS turnouts located along El Camino Real. Water is pumped from the turnouts to five storage tanks and to two reservoirs located at higher elevations in the City’s distribution system.

Burlingame’s water system is divided into two sections. Water for the hills area is supplied by water pumped into tanks and reservoirs; and water for the lower elevation area is supplied directly from the SF RWS turnouts.

For emergency water supply, Burlingame has connections to California Water Service Company, which serves the City of San Mateo, and connections to the Town of Hillsborough and the City of Millbrae water systems.
