Avista Utilities Begins Lake Spokane Drawdown
Avista Utilities Begins Lake Spokane Drawdown

Spokane, Wash., December 27// -- Avista Utilities will start to draw down Lake Spokane (Long Lake Reservoir) the week of Dec. 31, 2001. It is expected that the reservoir will be lowered up to one foot per day for a two to three week period, dropping the level of the lake to about 14 feet below its maximum summer elevation of 1536.0 feet by the third week of January.

The company would like to remind reservoir residents and lake-users to make any necessary preparations, including removing boats from the water and securing docks and boathouses for low-water conditions.

Forecasted water levels are subject to change due to a variety of factors, such as weather or equipment problems at the Long Lake dam. Always be alert to signs of such changes and always exercise the highest level of personal caution and safety when using the waterways. Updated reservoir level information is always available by calling Avista's Lake Information Recording at (509) 495-8043.
