New pump to move Folsom water uphill

EL DORADO HILLS — A 125-horsepower pump capable of pumping 1,400 gallons of water per minute went into operation Monday morning at the El Dorado Irrigation District’s Oak Ridge Pumping Station.

Much needed water from EID’s 7,550-acre-foot Folsom Lake allotment is now flowing from the El Dorado Hills Water Treatment Plant on Francisco Drive through the Oak Ridge facility and up the hill into Cameron Park to take some of the strain off Sly Park Reservoir.

As the crowd of county officials and EID directors that had gathered for the event started to disperse, a truck carrying another 125-horsepower pump chugged up the hill above Oak Ridge School.

That pump is expected to be operating by the end of the week …

The School Superintendent’s Salary

On Monday last the County Auditor John P. Fisher refused to issue a warrant to School Superintendent  S. B. Wilson for the salary due for the month of March. The reason given by the auditor for with-holding the salary was that his bondsmen feared that owing to T. E. McCarty’s contest for the office of School Superintendent, the Auditor would incur a liability by paying the salary to Wilson.

Under the law the salary is payable to the person who holds the certificate of election and discharges the duties of the office, both of which conditions are met by Wilson. To test the matter before a competent Court it has been arranged that Wilson shall apply for a writ of mandate requiring the Auditor to issue the salary warrant.

It has been contended on behalf of T. E. McCarty, and so stated in a local paper, that in the event that the Supreme Court renders a decision in his favor that he will be entitled to the salary of the office for the full term, thus making the taxpayers of this county pay a double salary while the contest for the office of School Superintendent is pending …
