El Dorado Canal Diversion Vegetation Management Project
MND - Mitigated Negative Declaration
Present Land Use
Natural Resources (NR) in the El Dorado General Plan
The El Dorado Irrigation District (EID) proposes to implement the El Dorado Canal Diversion Vegetation Management Project (Project) to reduce fire risk by treating vegetation on approximately 42-acres of EID property in the vicinity of the El Dorado Canal near the El Dorado Diversion Dam. The Project site is adjacent to U.S. Highway 50 approximately 1.5 miles southwest of the town of Kyburz in El Dorado County, California. Vegetation management proposed by EID is designed to protect critical water infrastructure facilities located in a very high fire hazard severity zone while also serving to reduce fuel loads and create defensible space for neighboring communities located in the wildland urban interface. Vegetation management activities that would be carried out under the Project include tree and brush removal, mastication and pruning to inhibit fire spread. The Project would be funded by a California Climate Investments Fire Prevention Grant administered by the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CAL FIRE). The Fire Prevention program is designed to improve resiliency of forested and forest-adjacent communities and upper watershed forests while achieving climate goals.
