Title:
Shasta Lake Water Resources Investigation EIS and Feasibility Report
Site: www.usbr.gov/mp/slwri/
Summary:
Reclamation is conducting a feasibility study to evaluate the potential effects of alternative plans for enlarging Shasta Dam from 6.5 feet, 12.5 feet, and 18.5 to increase anadromous fish survival, water supply reliability, and opportunities to improve flood damage reduction, water quality, hydropower generation, and recreation. Results of the study have been addressed in a Final Feasibility Report and environmental impact statement for the Shasta Lake Water Resources Investigation, which were provided to Congress on July 29, 2015. When providing these reports to Congress, it was noted that they do not include a recommendation for Congressional action, and should the Congress authorize a project based on these reports, then the specified outstanding issues must be resolved before making a recommendation, and subject to future federal budget priorities and securing non-federal financing for a majority of the construction costs before the Secretary of Interior could recommend the project. The feasibility report can be found at the above website.
