Post Falls Boat Ramp to Close for Season
Annual closure begins Monday, Nov. 14, 2005

Spokane, Wash., November 7// -- The Q'emiln Park boat ramp on the Spokane River in Post Falls, Idaho, will be closed for the season beginning Monday, Nov. 14. The ramp, located upstream of Avista Utilities' Post Falls Hydroelectric Development, is typically closed each year in mid-November due to weather conditions and dropping water levels. The ramp will re-open in the late spring or early summer, depending on the amount of inflows into Lake Coeur d'Alene.

As a result of Avista's annual fall/winter drawdown of Lake Coeur d'Alene, Spokane River levels above the dam are currently four feet below summer elevation. Water levels may drop by as much as five additional feet by the end of January.

Avista has a 24-hour telephone information line that provides notification of anticipated elevation changes on Lake Coeur d'Alene, Lake Spokane and the Spokane River during the subsequent 24-hour and one-week periods. In Idaho, call (208) 769-1357; in Washington call (509) 495-8043.
