El Dorado Board authorizes funds for El Dorado Forebay Dam project

The El Dorado Irrigation District (District) Board of Directors has authorized funding in the amount of $640,117 to continue the design study and begin environmental review for the El Dorado Forebay Dam Remediation and Enlargement Project. The El Dorado Forebay, located in Pollock Pines, is an off-stream reservoir that both regulates drinking water supplies to District customers and the water that flows into the El Dorado Powerhouse.

The El Dorado Forebay Dam is 89 years old and does not meet modern dam safety engineering standards. The proposed remediation project will increase public safety by providing further protection of downstream residents, life, and property.   

The design and environmental analysis process is expected to be completed in 2012 with construction beginning as early as 2013 or more likely 2014.
