Updated: River Releases Significantly Lowered

The Sacramento River’s high waters won’t be so high after all. In a reversal of Tuesday’s announcement, the Bureau of Reclamation has now decided to cut water releases from Keswick Dam to 49,000 cubic feet per second, which is sharply down from the peak of 83,000 CFS. that it reached Tuesday. That’s when the bureau said they would continue the maximum releases for a couple of weeks in anticipation of increased inflows from more strong rains in the forecast. Officials said the high releases were necessary to maintain flood control. ¬†Lake Shasta is currently about 12 feet from the crest of the dam. River levels can be expected to rise again as the rainstorm feeds its many tributaries. The Sacramento River is still closed to boating and other recreational activities until further notice.
