Keswick dam acts as Shasta dam’s after-bay stabilizing the erratic water flow released through Shasta power plant. Keswick reservoir captures water diverted from the Trinity River through the trinity river division. Keswick power plant further generates power using Sacramento River. The CVP is a major water conservation developments extending from the Cascade range in the north to the semi-arid but fertile plains along the kern river in the south. It was built mainly to deal with flooding issues and water shortages, but as time progressed more missions came into play due to development of canals, power plants and more dams. CVP plan was passed by the state legislature in 1933 but the project was not constructed until the federal government assumed control of the project and its initial features were authorized for construction by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Funds for construction of the initial features of the Central Valley Project were provided by the Emergency Relief Appropriation Act of 1935. Later, U.S. Bureau of Reclamation took over CVP construction and operation, and the project became subject to Reclamation law under the 1937 act with three objectives: regulate rivers and improve flood control and navigation; Provide water for irrigation and domestic use; and generate power. Shasta diversions are among the major projects of CVP and the projects were approved in the late 1930s.
