                       About EIDFact...




This web site is about independently presenting facts about EID, the El Dorado Irrigation District, that are relevant for public consideration. This is about presenting unbiased, objective factual information to the public instead of strident political dogma. Such dogma still is pervasive in public opinion writing in local media and in discussions at EID board meetings..

About me, the author of this site: I am Paul Raveling, a homeowner in El Dorado Hills since 1990 and a retired software engineer. Software engineering is a discipline which has substantially no tolerance for incorrectness. Anyone who would like details is welcome to contact me.

Who am I?  See this concise single-page resume.

We need no garbage.
