Order Details
The Shasta Dam in northern California is a vital cog of the Central California Project. While building the dam for flood control, water provision and electricity production, the confluence of three rivers – centered on the Sacramento River were flooded. The resulting Shasta Lake has become a tourism focus. Simultaneously, the dam’s environmental impact on salmon and other species has become controversial. There is a current discussion to raise the upper level of the dam in order to increase water storage and consistency.
A recent report was concluded as such: “The billion dollars it would cost to raise the dam holding back the largest reservoir in California would, at least on the surface, be money well spent, a federal study concluded this week.”
