Granite has been chosen by El Dorado Irrigation District (EID) to carry out a $36 million water infrastructure project at Folsom Lake in northern California.
Folsom Lake Intake supplies raw water from Folsom Lake to the El Dorado Hills Water Treatment Plant where it is treated and conveyed to local customers.
Granite says the project will improve existing facilities including the replacement of all intake structures, pumps and associated piping, electrical, controls and site modifications. Crews will also construct a temperature-controlled device for EID’s intake facilities to help preserve the cold-water pool in Folsom Lake to help enhance downstream habitat for anadromous fish species as well as maintaining water delivery service during construction.
Construction is estimated to begin this summer and be completed in Spring 2022.
