Document Description
The Shasta River Tailwater Reduction Project consists of seven project sites, with a total eleven different tailwater reducing elements, each of which is designed to improve irrigation efficiencies, reduce the amount of cold water resources being utilized for irrigation, and reduce the amount of warm tailwater being returned to the Shasta River. The components of this project are designed to improve water quality by decreasing temperatures and increasing dissolved oxygen (DO) in the Shasta River, an anadromous fishery, and known spawning and rearing habitat for the federally threatened Cobo Salmon. The project addresses numerous regional and regulatory priorities and provides benefits to water quality, ground water recharge, and improvements to aquatic and riparian habitat along the Shasta River and its tributaries. This project is funded by a grant from the CA Proposition 40/50 Agricultural Water Quality Grant Program and a grant from the Clean Water Act 319H Nonpoint Source Implementation Program. Both grants are from the State Water Resources Control Board.
