 INDEPENDENT AUDITOR’S REPORT
    To the Board of Directors Foresthill Public Utility District Foresthill, California    We have audited the accompanying financial statements of Foresthill Public Utility District (the “District”) as of and for the year ended June 30, 2007, as listed in the table of contents. These financial statements are the responsibility of the District’s management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audit.  We conducted our audit in accordance with auditing standards generally accepted in the United States of America and the standards applicable to financial audits contained inGovernment Auditing Standards, issued by the Comptroller General of the United States. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audit provides a reasonable basis for our opinion.  In our opinion, the financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of Foresthill Public Utility District as of June 30, 2007 and the results of its operations and its cash flows for the year then ended in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.  In accordance withGovernment Auditing Standards, we have also issued our report dated October 10, 2007 on our consideration of the District’s internal control over financial reporting and on our tests of its compliance with certain provisions of laws, regulations, contracts, and grants.

  The Management’s Discussion and Analysis is not a required part of the financial statements but is supplemental information required by the Government Auditing Standards Board. We have applied certain limited procedures, which consisted principally of inquiries of management regarding the methods of measurement and presentation of the supplemental information. However, we did not audit the information and express no opinion on it.  The supplemental information listed in the table of contents is presented for purposes of additional analysis and is not a required part of the basic financial statements of Foresthill Public Utility District. Such information has been subjected to the auditing procedures applied in the audit of the basic financial statements and, in our opinion, is fairly stated, in all material respects, in relation to the basic financial statements taken as a whole.
