Running out of water...
















I had a delivery in OBrien at the Holiday Harbor Resort and Marina, the only problem was the lack of water in the lake at the marina.
The lake level is quite low this year with very little rainfall in the forecast for the near future. (Click picture for larger image)

Measured on: September 22, 2008
(This is not today's date.)

Shasta Lake water level: 919.36 feet
(Elevation above sea level - Full lake is 1067 feet)

Distance from dam crest: 147.64 feet
(Drawdown, feet from the top)


Historic note: During the drought in 1977 Shasta Lake was at its lowest level ever recorded. In September of that year Shasta Lake was down 238 feet from the top.
