SHASTA COUNTY, Calif. - The Whiskeytown National Recreation Area has announced the completion of its new wastewater processing system.

The system, nicknamed "Max," is a complex and efficient filtration system that's up and running at Oak Bottom.

The previous system was destroyed by the Carr Fire. 

Park staff are working with Washington staff to identify funding for destroyed park and concessionaire infrastructure.

The park also received notice that funding will be available to redesign Oak Bottom and to design and build a law enforcement and dispatch center as a part of the Disaster Relief Bill.

Rain and snow showers will become heavier and more widespread on Friday. Snow levels will drop as we head into your weekend, and then we'll dry out on Sunday.
