The Folsom Lake Intake provides a vital water source for customers in El Dorado Hills, particularly during the summer. Royal Electric Company was subcontracted by Granite Construction to assist in improving the reliability of the original 1958 intake. The work involved new structures, pumps, and associated piping, electrical control as well as site modifications. The project also included the construction of a temperature-controlled device to enrich downstream habitat for salmon and trout.
Royal Electric’s scope of work included the installation of trench sheeting shoring and bracing as well as demolition of booster pumps, yard piping, electrical vaults, main switchboard, PG&E transformer and cabling, existing motor control centers and VFD units.
Royal crews also installed conduit, poured concrete pads, installed electric vaults, medium voltage switch gear, SWGR A/B remote breaker control panels, motor control centers, VFD panels, a transformer and generator termination cabinet.
