Shasta County Water Agency

The Shasta County Water Agency was established in 1957 to develop water resources for the beneficial use of the people of Shasta County. The Agency currently administers 1,022 acre-feet of Central Valley Project water that is subcontracted to private parties and other water purveyors in the County. The Water Agency also acts as staff to the Redding Area Water Council, a group dedicated to preserving the quantity and quality of water available in the Redding Basin. The Water Agency's governing body is the Shasta County Board of Supervisors.

In May 2007 Shasta County adopted a Coordinated AB 3030 Groundwater Management Plan for the Redding Groundwater Basin.

In June 2007 Shasta County approved the Redding Basin Water Resources Management Plan to help ensure water supply reliability in the Redding Basin during a drought.

Shasta County is participating in the Northern Sacramento Valley Integrated Regional Water Management (NSVIRWM) Plan Group with Butte, Colusa, Glenn, Sutter, and Tehama counties. Information about this group is at:
