    Board Authorizes Contract for Flume Replacement Project to Ensure Reliability of Water Delivery

    At its January 10, 2011 meeting, the El Dorado Irrigation District (EID) Board of Directors approved funding of $248,852 for the design and permitting for the Flume 41 replacement project. Included in that amount was a $138,852 contract change order to Carlton Engineering for design services as well as $110,000 for staff support, acquisition of agency approvals, and permits. The Flume 41 project is part of the District’s long-term rehabilitation program for the 22.3-mile El Dorado Canal, which delivers drinking water from four high-Sierra reservoirs to customers throughout the District’s service area and supplies water to generate EID’s state-certified renewable hydroelectric power.
