Water Flow Information
Water conditions as of Friday, February 23, 2018. Please be aware that water conditions can change drastically at any time depending upon weather and dam operations.
Coeur d'Alene Lake
The elevation of Coeur d'Alene Lake this morning is 2125.25, which is about 2 feet 9 inches below maximum summer level. We expect the elevation of CDA lake to continue to decrease over the next week.
Spokane River between Coeur d'Alene Lake and the Post Falls Bridge
The following information is concerning water levels between Coeur d'Alene Lake and the Post Falls bridge. The present water level at the bridge is 2119.7. We expect the level of the water above the dam to stay about the same over the next week.
Spokane River below Post Falls
The flow in the Spokane River below Post Falls this morning is about 10600 cfs. This flow consists of about 6200 cfs discharged from the South Channel and about 4400 cfs discharged from the North Channel. The flow in the Spokane River at Spokane this morning is about 11400 cfs. We expect the flows in the river to decrease over the next week.
Lake Spokane at the Long Lake Dam
The elevation of Lake Spokane at the Long Lake dam is 1534.0 which is about 6 inches below normal level. The level of Lake Spokane will remain constant until further notice because of icing on the lake. We will likely NOT be doing the normal winter drawdown this year because of high flows in the Spokane River.
It is important to remember that water levels could change drastically due to a variety of factors such as weather or equipment problems at the Post Falls dam. So stay alert to signs of such changes and always exercise the highest level of personal caution when using the waterways. If you need any additional information, feel free to call (509) 495-4283.
