What is the web address of the Shasta Lake Heritage And Historical Society in Shasta Lake California?
Indirectly, yes. The snow that falls on Mount Shasta and in the Sierra Nevada mountains melts during the spring and summer. This water runs downhill, into Lake Shasta and into the Sacramento River. (Lake Shasta is a reservoir behind Shasta Dam.) This water contributes to the drinking water supplies in northern California.
Believe it or not, the Shasta Mountain that consists snow year round melts and creates several streams that feed lake Shasta. There are three main rivers : the McCloud, Sacramento, and the Pit rivers are the three largest that feed the lake. The largest of these, the Sacramento river, actually begins as a spring coming out of a hill in the park in Mt. Shasta City (Siskiyou county)
