PRIEST LAKE OPERATIONS ALERT

IMPORTANT INFORMATION CONCERNING EARLY LAKE DRAWDOWN

Drawdown releases will begin on October 1, 2020. Flows will be rapidly increased over several days to lower the lake level 3 feet in preparation for Priest Lake Outlet Dam improvements work and Thorofare break-water rehabilitation work beginning on November 1, 2020. Early winterization of docks and boats is strongly recommended to ensure work is complete before the end of September. Boat ramps may become inaccessible earlier than normal, and high river flows are expected.

Thank you for your cooperation,

Idaho Water Resource Board
