ACWA Regions 2 & 4 will be co-hosting a program and tour to highlight the importance of Shasta Dam.  Finalized in 1945, Shasta Dam provides vital flood control benefits, hydroelectric power, and water supply reliability for millions of Californians.  Shasta Dam and reservoir also serve as the cornerstone of the Central Valley Project, providing 4,552,000 million-acre feet of storage capacity. The program portion of the event will cover the history of Shasta Dam as well as its coordinated operations. The program will also examine the implications of raising Shasta Dam to increase storage capacity. Following the program, attendees will receive a site visit tour of Shasta Dam hosted by the Bureau of Reclamation. Lunch and program materials will be provided. Attendees who select the registration option that includes bus transportation will also receive a special bus program that will feature several speakers covering priority issues affecting both ACWA Regions 2 and 4. Agenda coming soon.

Register now! Space is limited and onsite registration will not be available.
