The California North Coast Regional Water Quality Control Board continues to neglect minimum flow requirements for the Shasta River. For years, the water board has looked the other way when summer flows have become dangerously low. These drought-like flows and corresponding poor water quality continue to harm the Shasta's threatened coho salmon and steelhead.
The North Coast Regional Water Quality Control Board is accepting comments on their action plan for the Shasta River until January 9th. Please join the groundswell of public support advocating on behalf of wild fish in the Shasta River and sign the below action alert today. It's time for the water board to require and enforce permanent minimum flows in the Shasta River. This action is critical to ensure that wild fish have the water they need to not only survive but to thrive!
