Shasta Lake is at about 30 percent of capacity, the lowest it’s been at this time of year since 1977. KRCR spoke with Bureau of Reclamation Area Manager Don Bader on a windy morning on top of Shasta Dam. He says a water schedule is set in February and adjusted as necessary. The release from Keswick Dam is about 8,000 cubic feet per second (CFS). Normally it would be 12,000 CFS. The reason that much water is flowing downriver is for freshwater fish in the delta and agricultural diversions.
