Over the past year there has been a lot of discussion about Shasta Lake’s water level. Contrary to popular belief, there is plenty of water and the level continues to rise today.
As of today, March 4, 2015 Shasta lake’s elevation is at 990.48 feet and rising. Full lake elevation and dam crest is 1067 feet. There are countless miles of shoreline to discover and more.
Seasonal rainfall totals for northern California have been normal for months now. San Jose is 106% of normal and Moffett Field in Mountain View is 117%. Shasta Lake has almost 1 million acre feet more water than a year ago and will continue to fill for months.
