· Residents will be notified via El Dorado Sheriff’s Office and El Dorado County social media and Code Red approximately 24 hours prior to a designated date and time based on their address that they will be allowed re-entry.
The re-population for Grizzly Flats residents to allow those whose homes are habitable and those whose homes have been lost will begin in a staggered manner starting Sunday and will likely be completed by the end of the day Monday. Below is a general overview of the process.

As CAL FIRE officials allow more EID customers to return home, the District requests that customers refrain from using any non-essential water use during the first 24 hours of returning to their homes.
Water that has remained in service lines during evacuation periods can result in customers detecting taste and odor issues that may be easily addressed by flushing the taps. EID’s water is safe to drink.
El Dorado Irrigation District (EID) officials request that evacuated residents with water service provided by EID consider running internal taps for a couple minutes upon returning to ensure fresh water in their homes.
There will be smoke in the respective areas as firefighters continue firefighting operations. If at any time you feel unsafe, please call 911. For tips on
