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.

This decision and a prior court ruling spared EID from paying more than $300,000 in excessive fees for the operation of its Project 184 in 2009 and 2010.
