Avista will begin lowering the water level at Lake Coeur d’Alene and the Spokane River behind Post Falls Dam on Tuesday, September 8 in accordance with its new Federal Energy Regulatory Commission license.

Avista manages the lake level to prepare for spring runoff, to mitigate flooding in the winter and to optimize power production. The drawdown will take several months to complete.
