It provides supplemental information to the previous Notice of Preparation (NOP) dated May 22, 1998, as described herein. The EIR under preparation will be part of a joint environmental impact report/environmental impact statement (EIR/EIS) addressing the potential environmental consequences of a proposed Central Valley Project (CVP) Water Service Contract between the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation (Reclamation) and the El Dorado County Water Agency (EDCWA). Previous Notices An NOP for the EIR/EIS was originally prepared for this project and circulated in April 1993 (SCH # 93052016). A Notice of Intent (NOI), prepared by Reclamation as the federal Lead Agency for purposes of National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) compliance, was similarly prepared for the project and published in the Federal Register (Vol. 58, No. 90, May 12, 1993). Subsequently, new information regarding potential project alternatives was identified and made available, warranting issuance of another revised NOP in May 1998. Since 1998, a number of events have transpired that have prompted EDCWA to issue this Supplemental NOP. Specifically, in 1999 the El Dorado County General Plan Update was suspended by a Writ of Mandate, and additional environmental review of the General Plan was required. El Dorado County completed the supplemental environmental review, and approved the General Plan Update in July 2004; in March 2005, El Dorado County voters approved the referendum on the General Plan adopted by the Board of Supervisors. In September 2005, the Sacramento County Superior Court discharged the Writ of Mandate that previously limited development approvals in El Dorado County pending completion of the new General Plan. Additionally, water needs for this region have recently been verified, and focused information on the potential alternatives, including the intended service areas, have been established. Through the alternatives development process, key agencies have now been identified as potential Responsible Agencies under CEQA. As explained below, these agencies include the State Water Resources Control Board (SWRCB) and the Placer County Water Agency (PCWA). Description of the Project In 1990, Congress passed Public Law 101-514, which directed Reclamation to enter into a long-term CVP Municipal and Industrial (M&I) water service contract with EDCWA. Section 206 (b)(1)(B) provides that Reclamation enter into an M&I water service contract with EDCWA for up to 15,000 acre-feet per annum (AFA). This contract would have a 40-year term and would be subject to renewals. This action, the execution of a master contract with EDCWA, represents the proposed action. EDCWA intends to allocate this new contract water to both El Dorado Irrigation District (EID) and Georgetown Divide Public Utility District (GDPUD) based on these parties’ individual water needs and timing requests. This will require separate contracts between EDCWA and both EID and GDPUD with Reclamation approval. At present, it is assumed that the new federal allocation would be split equally between EID and GDPUD such that each purveyor would be provided 7,500 AFA. The EIR/EIS will include project-level analysis not only of the master contract between Reclamation and EDCWA, but also of alternative scenarios representing different amounts 3 ?3URMHFWV $OO (PSOR\HHV?' ? ('&:$?'(,6 ?$SSHQGLFHV?SGIV IRU (,6 (,5 DSSHQGLFHV? QRWLFLQJ?123 6LJQHG GRF of water being allocated to EID and GDPUD respectively, including a reduced diversion (although any treatment and delivery infrastructure required by either of these two agencies will be addressed only programmatically). For its allocation, EID proposes to divert directly from Folsom Reservoir. Treatment would occur at either the existing El Dorado Hills Water Treatment Plant or at a new plant at Bass Lake. GDPUD, on the other hand, would receive its allocation by way of a water exchange. Due to its inability to divert directly from Folsom Reservoir, GDPUD would exchange its new federal water allocation with another purveyor upstream on the American River (a situation specifically provided for under the legislation); this upstream purveyor must, however, have the ability of directly diverting CVP water. An obvious location for GDPUD to divert their exchanged water would be at the permanent site for the Auburn Pumps (currently under construction), now owned and operated by PCWA. During the design of the pump station, an under-river caisson was to be stubbed out at the southern bank of the river; this was to accommodate GDPUD in the event that it chose to utilize this diversion facility in the future. Under the water exchange being contemplated, GDPUD would divert a prescribed quantity of PCWA’s Middle Fork Project (MFP) water rights water at the pumps, in exchange for relinquishing a prescribed quantity of its CVP allocation to PCWA for diversion at Folsom Dam. The exact quantities of the exchange and the conditions of their diversions would be the subject of an agreement between GDPUD, PCWA, and Reclamation. For such an exchange to physically occur, PCWA would ultimately have to petition the SWRCB for a Change in Place of Use (POU) of its MFP water rights. Currently, MFP water rights are not approved for use in El Dorado County. For GDPUD to use MFP water rights water, their service area would have to be included in the MFP authorized POU. Consequently, under this exchange, both PCWA and the SWRCB would be Responsible Agencies, as noted above. Service Areas (Use Areas) The current service area boundaries for EID and GDPUD are shown in Figure 1. Use of this new CVP water and the new exchanged MFP water rights, however, would be used in a much smaller defined area. These smaller areas are also identified in Figure 1. As denoted by the black cross- hatching, these areas represent the federal “action area”. These areas will be the Subcontractor Service Areas (identified in the water service contracts) and, accordingly, will also be, for the most part, the focus of the environmental landside evaluation of this EIR/EIS. The Subcontractor Service Areas have been extensively developed through careful consideration of anticipated future growth areas, consistency with General Plan designation, and based on the practical limits of pumping. Potential Environmental Impacts The EIR/EIS focuses on the potential environmental impacts resulting from the execution and implementation of the new CVP water contract. At a project-level, it will address a comprehensive range of in-stream potential effects resulting from this new 15,000 AFA withdrawal, including a detailed evaluation of the effects to the CVP/SWP. This will involve assessments of water-related resources including; fisheries, riparian species/habitats, water-related recreation, water-related cultural resources, and water quality. It will also address water supply impacts across the CVP/SWP, flood control at Folsom Reservoir, and potential effects to CVP hydropower generation and pumping impacts at the reservoir. Water-related analyses will be facilitated through the application and use of Reclamation’s planning and operations model, CALSIM II along with other environmental models that utilize CALSIM II output hydrology. At present, the Lead Agencies lack sufficient information to ascertain whether any of these impacts will be significant. No new infrastructure facilities are proposed with this project. While the EIR/EIS will identify, to the extent known, possible future infrastructure projects that would be needed to utilize the contract water fully, many of these details are not currently known. Accordingly, as noted above, a program- level assessment of known or potential facilities will be provided in the EIR/EIS. The range of actions associated with this project has identified the involvement of several agencies. While EDCWA is the Lead Agency under CEQA, the Responsible Agencies include EID, GDPUD, PCWA, and the SWRCB. Each of the Responsible Agencies possesses separate and independent discretionary authority on one or more aspects of the project and is expected to rely on this EIR/EIS, to the extent possible, to support its decisions. Public Scoping Meetings EDCWA will co-host two Public Scoping Meetings with Reclamation on the proposed project, to be held in the Placerville and Georgetown Divide areas. The meetings are scheduled for September 26 and 27, 2006 from 6:00 to 8:00 pm. Any interested member of the public is invited to attend. Facilities where the meetings will be held are ADA-accessible. An overview of the project will be presented and public comments received. The locations of the two meetings are provided below: September 26, 2006 El Dorado Irrigation District Harry J.

Page 2 of 3 Rele Public Scoping Meetings Scheduled on the Proposed Water Service Contract with El Dorado County Water Agency The Bureau of Reclamation and El Dorado County Water Agency (EDCWA) intend to prepare a joint Environmental Impact Statement/Environmental Impact Report (EIS/EIR) for a Central Valley Project (CVP) water service contract. In 1990, Congress passed Public Law 101-514, directing Reclamation to enter into a long-term CVP Municipal and Industrial (M&I) water service contract with EDCWA to meet the long-term water supply needs of El Dorado County. The proposed water service contract with EDCWA is for up to 15,000 acre- feet per year for diversion from Folsom Reservoir or for exchange upstream on the American River. EDCWA proposes to sub-contract this water equally between El Dorado Irrigation District (EID) and Georgetown Divide Public Utility District (GDPUD). EID proposes to take its supply from Folsom Reservoir. GDPUD proposes to take its supply upstream by way of a water exchange with Placer County Water Agency at the American River Pump Station. The EIS/EIR focuses on potential environmental impacts resulting from implementation of the proposed CVP contract and will include evaluation of the "no project" alternative as well as alternative delivery quantities. The project will address a comprehensive range of potential effects resulting from the new water service contract, including a detailed evaluation of the effects to both water and land related resources. The EIS/EIR will also identify, at a programmatic level, possible future infrastructure projects that would be needed to fully utilize this contract water. A Notice of Intent to prepare the EIS will be published in the Federal Register on Friday, September 15, 2006. Two scoping meetings are being held to solicit public input on topics that will be addressed in the EIS/EIR. Meeting participants will have the opportunity to interact directly with the study team. The meetings are scheduled as follows: Placerville Greenwood Tuesday, September 26, 2006, 6-8 p.m. Wednesday, September 27, 2006, 6-8 p.m. El Dorado Irrigation District Greenwood Community Center 2890 Mosquito Road 4411 Highway 193 Written comments on the scope of the environmental document must be received by close of business Monday, October 16, 2006.

This action was authorized under P.L.101-514 (Section 206). The pending EIS/EIR will evaluate potential environmental impacts to water- and land-related resources resulting from implementation of the proposed CVP contract. It will evaluate potential impacts of the Agency's provisional plans to allocate this water equally between El Dorado Irrigation District and Georgetown Divide Public Utility District. Alternatives will include reduced and alternative delivery quantities as well as a “No Action/Project” alternative. Two scoping meetings are being held to solicit public input on topics to be addressed in the EIS/EIR. Meeting participants will have the opportunity to interact directly with the study team.

It seems to me that State Board in their Water Rights capacity would be best able to address any concerns that the Regional Board might have. However, I would like to mention a few items that might be considered in developing the EIR/EIS. 1. The Lower American River from Folsom Dam to its confluence with the Sacramento River is designated as a "recreation" river in both the State and Federal Wild and Scenic Rivers systems. Will this project affect this designation? 2. The usage of the water by the two beneficiaries, EID and GDPUD, will probably generate wastewater. The impacts of the wastewater should be addressed with respect to the disposal of the wastewater. Its also important to note that urban runoff is also a wastewater that we regulate. Thanks for sending me the NOP. If you have any questions, please contact me.
