The project area for the Routine Maintenance Agreement (RMA) covers unincorporated El Dorado County, spans 44 U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) topographic quads, and includes the census designated communities of El Dorado Hills, Cameron Park, Diamond Springs, Pollock Pines, Shingle Springs, Auburn Lake Trails, Georgetown, Camino, Tahoma, Grizzly Flats, Coloma, and Cold Springs. The various types of routine maintenance work covered under the El Dorado County Department of Transportation’s (Department) proposed RMA with the California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) will be limited to the El Dorado County Road System (CRS) and will not cover routine maintenance work within the cities of Placerville and South Lake Tahoe, U.S. Forest Service (USFS) System roads, and roads maintained by the State of California (California Department of Transportation [Caltrans]). In addition, the Department does not maintain facilities managed by the El Dorado Irrigation District, McKinney Water District, the Grizzly Flats Community Services District, or the various public utility districts in El Dorado County. The elevation gradient in the project area is approximately 195 to 10,880 feet above mean sea level (amsl). Routine maintenance work would occur in three distinct elevation zones that capture the geographic variation of El Dorado County: West Slope at 3,500 feet elevation and below, West Slope above 3,500 feet elevation, and the Lake Tahoe Basin.
