Lack of baseline information about Mount Shasta’s water resources makes it difficult to formulate science-based water management decisions. Our goal is to obtain the data needed to protect the ecological and hydrological integrity of Mount Shasta’s unique spring waters.
This in turn will help us achieve water balance and safe yield for the McCloud River hydrologic system. To accomplish this, we must:
- Support baseline studies for the McCloud and Squaw Valley Creek hydrologic systems
- Implement the Mount Shasta Springs and Groundwater Study
- Develop water management plans with local municipalities that rely on spring water for town supply
- Work with partners to complete the Upper Sac Integrated Regional Water Management Plan
