Predicted rain likely to bring changing water levels in Coeur d’ Alene Lake and the Spokane River

May 24, 2019
Water level could change if weather prediction holds

Spokane Wash. – May 24, 2019:  Avista is advising shoreline property owners, boaters, lake and river users that the Spokane River above Post Falls Dam and Coeur d’ Alene Lake water level is likely to fluctuate over the holiday weekend. We expect the level of the water above the dam to decrease over the next few days as we open spillway gates at the dam to allow the additional water to pass. On average, spillway gates close around June 22nd to hold Coeur d’ Alene Lake at summer elevation level.

Lake and river users should always be alert to signs of changes and exercise the highest level of personal caution and safety.

Customers can access water flow information at myavista.com/waterflow or on our 24-hour telephone information line. You will find notification of anticipated elevation changes on Lake Spokane, the Spokane River, and Coeur d’Alene Lake. In Washington call (509) 495-8043 and in Idaho call (208) 769-1357. The recorded information is provided to advise shoreline property owners, commercial and recreational users of changes in the lake elevations and river flows that may affect plans for water use.
