El Dorado Irrigation District (EID/District) is a California special district located between Sacramento and Lake Tahoe in northern California. EID’s service area is geographically diverse and complex, covering 220 square miles and ranging from 500 feet at the Sacramento County line to more than 4,000 feet in elevation in the Sierra Nevada foothills.

The District provides water, wastewater, and recycled water services to more than 125,000 people and businesses, primarily in El Dorado County. It also operates award-winning recreation areas in three counties (El Dorado, Amador, and Alpine) and operates the El Dorado Powerhouse, a 25 MW hydropower plant. The hydropower plant is federally licensed (FERC Project 184) by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC). Project 184 includes dams, reservoirs, and 23 miles of flumes, canals, and tunnels.
