A Voice for the Sacramento River System Since 1984

Shasta Dam Raise

According the EIS, under all dam raise alternatives, "the 'bathtub ring' that is apparent at less than full pool conditions would become larger".

Project Info

Project Description

The Trust is against the proposed raising of Shasta Dam:  it would harm the Sacramento River, it would harm the McCloud River, it is too costly and it represents a further step away from sustainable water management.   It would also destroy values sacred to Winnemem Wintu tribe.  The US Bureau of Reclamation is the federal lead agency, and calls this project the “Shasta Lake Water Resources Investigation” (SLWRI), but they have only studied various alternatives of raising Shasta Dam.
