One can always find something of interest in the annual independent audit of the El Dorado Irrigation District. One fascinating table of statistics is Table 25, which lists the top employers in El Dorado County. County government used to be the biggest employer, but it is now fourth with 1,200 employees.

The leading employer is Blue Shield of California with 1,830, accounting for 4.1 percent of the total county employment. Red Hawk Casino is second with 1,350 employees and 3.02 percent of the total county employment. Marshall Medical Center is third with 1,232 employees and Barton Healthcare Systems at South Lake Tahoe is fifth with 947 employees. DST Output in El Dorado Hills is sixth with 850 employees, Sierra-at-Tahoe ski resort is seventh with 730 employees.

In eighth place as a local employer is the state of California, which employs 648 here. The El Dorado County Superintendent of Schools’ Office of Education employs 600. Tenth place is held by Home Depot, which employs 553. El Dorado Union High School District is 11th with 536 employees followed by Roebelin Construction of El Dorado Hills with 425 employees. Lake Tahoe Unified School District is 13th with 400 employees, followed by Camp Richardson Resort with 294 employees.

Coming  in at 15th is the El Dorado Irrigation District with 222 employees, accounting for 0.5 percent of the total county employment. In 2003 EID had 262 employees and was ranked 11th.

All figures are for 2012, based on the May 17 issue of the Sacramento Business Journal.

As of Sept. 3, EID had 216 full-time and three part-time employees, for a total of 219 employees. The number of positions authorized by the 2013 budget is 221.5. These numbers do not include the seasonal employees who are hired via a temp agency in the summer for the district’s recreational areas.
