El Dorado Water Agency (EDWA) General Manager Rebecca Guo hosted State representatives to tour the proposed site of the Alder Creek Reservoir. We appreciate our legislators taking a day to spend with us to tour the site as we will need both State and Federal support to move forward the required Feasibility Study, which has already been authorized by Congress.

Alder Creek Reservoir, located in El Dorado County between the Sierra Nevada ridge and Placerville, was identified by the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation and local partners as an important multi-beneficial storage project. Located in the upper reaches of the American River watershed, above an existing natural fish barrier, Alder Creek Reservoir is uniquely positioned to capture snowmelt and create storage from the upper South Fork of the American River.
