The Bureau of Reclamation and El Dorado County Water Agency (EDCWA) intend to prepare a joint Environmental Impact Statement/Environmental Impact Report (EIS/EIR) for a Central Valley Project (CVP) water service contract. In 1990, Congress passed Public Law 101-514, directing Reclamation to enter into a long-term CVP Municipal and Industrial (M&I) water service contract with EDCWA to meet the long-term water supply needs of El Dorado County. The proposed water service contract with EDCWA is for up to 15,000 acre-feet per year for diversion from Folsom Reservoir or for exchange upstream on the American River. EDCWA proposes to subcontract this water equally between El Dorado Irrigation District (EID) and Georgetown Divide Public Utility District (GDPUD). EID proposes to take its supply from Folsom Reservoir. GDPUD proposes to take its supply upstream by way of a water exchange with Placer County Water Agency at the American River Pump Station. RBI is leading the Section 7 consultation under the Endangered Species Act for the project. Key issues include Gabbro soil special-status plant species, California red-legged frog, valley elderberry longhorn beetle, and bald eagle.
