El DORADO COUNTY, CALIFORNIA OVERVIEW

The El Dorado County mesothelioma lawyers represent people who live in and/or who have been exposed to asbestos in the El Dorado County, California.  Located in the Sierra Nevada mountains, El Dorado County is on the eastern border of California, with the state of Nevada to the east.   It is bordered by Sacramento County on the west, Placer County to the north, and Amador and Alpine Counties to the south.

 

 

The county is home to parts of Lake Tahoe, as well as the American River and the El Dorado National Forest.  This National Forest covers approximately one million acres, and has 620 miles of rivers, streams and reservoirs, making up about 43% of the county area.  The Forest is also home to Desolation Wilderness, with 63 acres of protected area, with no buildings or roads and where bicycles and vehicles are not permitted.  The county’s beautiful mountains, parks and lakes make it the perfect spot for outdoor living, including hiking, snow sports, camping, golf and fishing and boating.  Along with Lake Tahoe, the County of El Dorado is also home to Jenkinson Lake, Loon Lake, and Echo Lakes.  These features make it a popular area for outdoor recreation for residents and for visitors.  In 1981, the American River was recognized as one of the most popular and heavily used rivers for recreation in California.

“El Dorado” is Spanish for “the Golden.” The county got its name from the California Gold Rush which began in the late 1840’s and changed the area and California forever.  The gold rush began at the Sutter Mill in Coloma, which is now part of Marshall Gold Discovery State Historical Park.  Signs of the California Gold Rush time can still be seen in the county today, and are a tribute to its history and part of its culture.  You can still pan for gold at the American and Cosumnes Rivers.  There are tours, festivals and even special monthly days that are dedicated to the local gold mining history of the county.

The county’s original peoples were the Maidu, Washoe and Miwok Native American tribes.  The California Gold Rush brought a sudden, major wave of new settlers to the area as well as widespread construction from mining, including damns, levees and conveyers.  Today, the county population is approximately 193,000 people.  As the Sacramento area has grown, so has El Dorado County.
