Post Falls Boat Ramp to Open for Summer
Weather conditions could require temporary closures

Spokane, Wash., June 7// -- Avista Utilities has closed spill gates at the Post Falls Hydroelectric Development for normal summer operations. The boat ramp at Q'emiln (Ka-mee-lin) Park will now remain open for the remainder of the season, subject to weather conditions.

Heavy precipitation may require opening the spill gates to avoid flooding. In that case city regulations require that the boat ramp be closed until the spill gates are shut again.

The level of Coeur d'Alene Lake is currently at the normal summer elevation. Avista will attempt to maintain a level of 2,128 ft. above sea level through Labor Day.

The boat ramp was open Memorial Day Weekend. However, on May 31 the ramp was closed to accommodate the annual Post Falls Days event that is held in the park.
