REDDING Calif. - Officials with the Bureau of Reclamation have announced that starting Wednesday, April 3, they will be increasing the amount of water coming out of Keswick Dam.  

The Sacramento River release from Keswick Dam will increase from 15,000 cubic feet per second to 17,500 cubic feet per second at 8 a.m. and then from 17,500 cubic feet per second to 20,000 cubic feet per second at 9 a.m. on Wednesday, April 3. 

This is still about half as much as was being released after a major storm in February. 

Flooding conditions along the banks of the Sacramento River are not concerns for law enforcement personnel. 

Action News Now will continue to monitor conditions as more water is released.
