Rock Bucket on Rock Pile
Turtle Bay, Redding, CA
Dragline buckets were used to gather gravel out of the Sacramento River.
Once the gravel material was dredged, it was sorted, washed and crushed
and used in the making of Shasta Dam.
This dragline bucket and rock pile remain as a reminder of the work done in Redding in
the construction of Shasta Dam.
