SHASTA COUNTY, Calif. - The Bureau of Reclamation announced Wednesday that the water release at Keswick Dam in Shasta County will increase on Thursday. 

This will cause the water levels at the Sacramento river to river rapidly. 

The current water release will rise from 20,000 cubic feet per second to 30,000 cubic feet per second. 

This change is being done to comply with Shasta County flood space regulatory requirements.

The Bureau encourages the public to stay away from any flooding caused by the rising river. 

More information on the current Sacramento River conditions can be found at the Department of Water Resources' website
