Safety cable at Nine Mile Dam getting replaced   

Tags: Electricity, Hydro power, Safety

If you’re out and about near the Nine Mile Dam today, you might notice some crews installing a new safety cable in the water.

The cable was broken by floating debris during the high runoff period in April, causing authorities to close the section of river between Plese Flats and the dam. Continuing high water levels have prevented crews from safely replacing the cable until now.
As this is a work in progress, please keep your distance. We expect that once the cable is in place the river, Spokane County will re-open it for recreation.

If I get some pictures of the replacement work, I’ll post them this week.
