Outflow from Keswick Dam, just downstream from Shasta Dam, was reduced early this afternoon from 14,000 to 6,000 cfs to allow the Anderson-Cottonwood Irrigation District to make adjustments to its diversion dam on the Sacramento River to allow for the higher flows out of Lake Shasta.
The increased flows are expected to last for approximately the next week to allow enough water to be drawn out of Lake Shasta to make room for additional inflow. Due to the increased flows of the Sacramento River, people downstream should keep aware of ongoing changes. Flows could fluctuate with the possibility of additional storm activity.
