Shasta Lake and Keswick Reservoir Flow and Temperature Modeling

Both Shasta Lake and Keswick Reservoir on the Sacramento River are significant water and hydroelectric resources within California.

Recent drought and associated impacts to fish species have increased attention to water temperature management in the Sacramento River below Keswick Dam.

Models that are broadly accepted, frequently updated, well-documented, and actively supported will become increasingly important in the multi-disciplinary based temperature management process.
