Recent drought and associated impacts on fish species have increased attention on water temperature management in the Sacramento River below Keswick Dam.
Shasta Lake and Keswick Reservoir are significant water and hydroelectric resources in California. During drought, it is crucial to use these resources effectively.
To make well-informed and balanced decisions on water use, SRSC works to provide accurate information to all stakeholders. The Shasta Lake and Keswick Reservoir Flow and Temperature Modeling Report provides science-based models that are broadly accepted, frequently updated, well-documented and actively supported. This report is an important to guide the multi-disciplinary temperature management process.
