SHASTA COUNTY, Calif. -Officials are increasing water releases from the Keswick Dam again on Tuesday, which has sparked flooding concerns for areas of Shasta County.
This has especially been a concern along Park Marina Drive in Redding due to potential flooding of the Sacramento River downstream from the dam.
Officials increased releases from the dam several times on Tuesday including:
30,000 cubic feet per second to 32,500 cubic feet per second at 9 a.m.
32,500 cubic feet per second to 35,000 cubic feet per second at 10 a.m.
35,000 cubic feet per second to 37,500 cubic feet per second at 11 a.m.
37,500 cubic feet per second to 40,000 cubic feet per second at noon
The Aqua Gold Course is remaining closed because of flooding as well as spots at the Marina RV Park.
Officials said the increased releases are necessary to meet flood space requirements within the Shasta Reservoir and depending on conditions and inflow levels they may have to increase water levels as necessary, and that will be on short notice.
