FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Placerville, Calif. — EID is committed to maintaining uninterrupted, safe, and reliable water, wastewater, and recycled water service for the communities it serves.

Since water and wastewater services are critical health and safety needs that our customers and community rely on, EID staff will be working throughout this challenging time.

In order to better protect the general public and our operational and administrative personnel, EID is implementing social distancing recommendations from public health officials that may impact customers, including:

  • EID’s main office in Placerville will be closed to the public. Customers who have not set up automatic bill payments can make payments online at eid.org, via mail, or over the phone at 530-642-4000.
  • Board or Committee meetings subject to the Brown Act will be conducted via teleconference. Board members will have the option to participate remotely or in person. Teleconference instructions will be distributed with meeting agendas.
  • The March 23 open house and public workshop previously scheduled to begin at 5:30 p.m. is canceled. EID staff are exploring options to conduct an online open house/workshop in the near future.
  • EID operations staff will be working throughout our service areas as needed. We ask members of the public to limit in-person interactions with field staff and respect their efforts to maintain social distance.

“These are challenging, unprecedented circumstances and EID will continue to adapt as circumstances change,” said EID General Manager Jim Abercrombie. “EID is one hundred percent committed to public safety and equally committed to open and transparent meetings—that’s why we are planning to make our meetings accessible by teleconference.”

The District encourages residents to visit El Dorado County’s COVID-19 website at https://www.edcgov.us/Government/hhsa/Pages/EDCCOVID-19.aspx to find reliable information and updates. EID will also continue to post periodic updates to its website at www.eid.org  and Facebook page at www.facebook.com/ElDoradoIrrigationDistrict/.
