The El Dorado County Water Agency Mission is to 

"Ensure that El Dorado County

has adequate water for today and in the future."



El Dorado County Water Agency is the trusted, county-wide leader on water-resource issues, representing the long-term interest of our community, purveyors and residents through a dedicated team of professionals, responsive and accountable to the public we serve.


The El Dorado County Water Agency is authorized by Chapter 96 of the 1959 Water Agency Act.

The establishment of the El Dorado County Water Agency allows the agency to develop a countywide water plan and to participate in statewide water planning. The agency is empowered to negotiate contracts with the Department of Water Resources, the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation and other local, state and federal agencies for water management and facility construction.
