In this District’s Weekly Press: It was a big day for the El Dorado Irrigation District as members of the board, staff members and other officials gathered Friday above Folsom Lake to celebrate the kick-off of a major infrastructure project. Promising to “drought-proof” Montecito and banish rationing – if not forever, at least for the foreseeable future – the Montecito Water District board on Thursday is poised to approve the purchase of a multi-million-dollar supply of water from the City of Santa Barbara, every year for the next 50 years. Even as Independence Day events and fireworks shows are canceled around Southern California, Valley-Wide Recreation and Park District and the Soboba Band of Luiseno Indians will put on a fireworks show on July 4.

Even as Independence Day events and fireworks shows are canceled around Southern California, Valley-Wide Recreation and Park District and the Soboba Band of Luiseno Indians will put on a fireworks show on July 4. But they don’t want anyone to attend. Instead, the fireworks show will be streamed live online. The cancellation, like many others, is due to concerns about the coronavirus pandemic. The location will not be announced before the show, according to a park district official.

Montecito Water District Board nears vote to purchase yearly water supply from Santa Barbara

Promising to “drought-proof” Montecito and banish rationing – if not forever, at least for the foreseeable future – the Montecito Water District board on Thursday is poised to approve the purchase of a multi-million-dollar supply of water from the City of Santa Barbara, every year for the next 50 years; and sign off on a five-year schedule of rate increases to help pay for it. Under the proposed “Water Supply Agreement” with Santa Barbara, which is six years in the making, the district’s 11,400 ratepayers, primarily in Montecito but also in Summerland and Toro Canyon, would effectively fund 46 percent, or $33 million, of the city’s $72 million desalination plant over 50 years, plus interest and a share of the plant’s operation and maintenance costs. In return, the city would guarantee a supply of 1,430 acre-feet of drinking water to Montecito Water District customers, year in and year out, through 2071.

It was a big day for the El Dorado Irrigation District as members of the board, staff members and other officials gathered Friday above Folsom Lake to celebrate the kick-off of a major infrastructure project. Benefitting tens of thousands of residents in El Dorado Hills, in February the EID Board of Directors unanimously approved spending $42 million dollars to replace critical components of the Folsom Lake water intake and restore needed reliability and capacity that has been lost to mechanical failure over the years.
