Document Description
El Dorado Irrigation District (District) proposes to carry out maintenance activities on the Lake Aloha dam (a.k.a. Medley Lakes) and the installation of a telemetry station at the dam. The proposed action consists of two improvements at Lake Aloha that would be implemented concurrently. The first involves maintenance and repairs of the Main Dam and Auxilliary Dams 4, 6, and 7. This work is required by the Department of Water Resources, Division of Safety of Dams (DSOD) in order to "keep the dam[s] in satisfactory condition." The second improvement would involve installation of a solar powered telemetry station on the Main Dam to help monitor lake levels and reservoir releases to comply with Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) license conditions, to help optimize operations, and to assist with protecting the resident Mountain yellow-legged frog (MYLF) (Rana muscosa) populations from trout predation.
