EID OKs $221k for required projects

By
From page A6 | November 15, 2013 |

Capital Improvement Program costs totaling $221,000 were unanimously approved by the El Dorado Irrigation District Board of Directors Nov. 12. The figure was a total for four different minor projects, all of which are required.

Three were required by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission and the fourth was required by the county Division of Transportation.

The three FERC expenditures are $28,000 to monitor the water temperature downstream from the four alpine reservoirs and upstream and downstream from diversions; $92,000 to measure water quality in those same areas; and $20,000 to monitor “ecological resources adaptive management” to determine appropriate stream flows.

The water temperature and water quality have several seasons of data, so staff “is evaluating opportunities to revise the plan to reduce or eliminate future water temperature” and “future water quality monitoring efforts.”

Part of the cost of the monitoring program is for battery replacement, part for a consultant to do the monitoring and part is the capitalized labor of staff doing the data evaluation.

The water temperature program has spent $154,500 to date. The water quality program has spent nearly $287,000 to date. The Adaptive Management Program has spent nearly $412,000 to date.

The fourth item is the final payment to the county of $81,000 for moving 940 feet of the Gold Hill Intertie and 6-inch waterline as part of the road realignment and replacement of the Tennessee Creek Bridge on Green Valley Road. The county Division of Transportation paid for 300 feet of the intertie and the entire length of the 6-inch waterline because EID had prior land rights. The remaining 640 feet of the intertie was paid by EID because that portion was within the county right of way. The total project cost was $476,000, less than the budget estimate of $520,000.
