The San Mateo Plain groundwater subbasin underlies the bayside of San Mateo County from approximately the City of San Mateo on the north, to approximately the County boundary at San Francisquito Creek on the south. Currently, there is no entity actively managing the basin. 

The Office of Sustainability and County Evironmental Health Services are jointly working on a groundwater basin assessment of the San Mateo Plain groundwater subbasin to assess the groundwater resources and current condition of the subbasin; and identify potential groundwater management strategies. The project is funded by Measure A, a countywide half-cent general sales tax passed by voters in 2013. 

Work on the assessment commenced in April 2016; the assessment is scheduled to be completed by April 2018. The development of the groundwater basin assessment will be a collaborative process. The Office of Sustainability and Environmental Health Services will be holding a series of workshops to solicit public and stakeholder feedback.
