In This Issue:

Thank you to everyone who has checked in on a neighbor during this unprecedented storm. Please see the information below and share with those who might not have internet access or use social media.

Important message from El Dorado County Road Maintenance:
Know that everyone is working as fast as safely possible to restore power and clear roadways:

El Dorado County DOT employees do not remove downed trees involved in utility lines, such as PG&E, and AT&T. Our staff treat all utility lines as if they are live. Once the utility lines have been removed, and given the all clear, we are willing to assist with the removal of the tree. There are multiple situations where we are simply unable to plow roads due to these circumstances. We appreciate your patience and understanding during this Winter Storm.
