Lake Reports

Shasta Lake
Shasta Lake By Good afternoon Shasta Lake!!! We are officially above the 10 foot mark! ???? The permitted businesses on the lake had our annual spring meeting with the Forest Service this week. As promised, I wanted to share some of the information we learned, and it was a LOT! LAKE LEVELS - First and foremost was an update from Don Bader, Area Manager for the Bureau of Reclamation regarding what to expect for this year's lake levels. Due to amount of rain and rebound of the snow pack this year, the BOR expects it to another full lake level year! As Don stated, "It is going to come to the top!" It looks as if it will remain relatively full throughout the summer and by Labor Day weekend we should only be at 1020' (47' down). By November 1st, only 1000' (67' down)!!! We will get more detailed projections within the next month or so. This also indicates that our CA agriculture should get 100% of their allocations. LAKE DEBRIS - Over the next several weeks as we fill up the last 10 feet of the lake, we do expect the usual seasonal debris flows. However, it should be less than what we experienced last year because we had a high lake level last year, which helps to move the debris down to the dam through natural flow. The 3 years of low lake levels before that had allowed more debris to dry out in a much larger area which caused the massive flows and "rafts" that we saw last year. The Forest Service is doing all that they can to mitigate the issue. Keep in mind it is extremely expensive and requires a number of man hours to coral the debris floats.
