El Dorado Irrigation District's Pump Station Temperature Control Device Environmental Assessment
Reclamation and EID plan to install a TCD on EID's existing water supply intake in Folsom Reservoir in order to preserve cold water for release to the lower American River for the benefit of fall-run Chinook salmon and steelhead. This project is part of the Water Forum's Initial Fisheries and In-stream Habitat Management and Restoration Plan for the Lower American River, dated October 31, 2001.

The contractor is not continuing to pursue the implementation of this TCD as it relates to their pump station. There have been other regional solutions presented that may serve to fulfill this structural improvement RPA’s intent.
