Water conditions as of 8:00 am Tuesday, February 9, 2016. Please be aware that water conditions can change drastically at any time depending upon weather and dam operations.
Coeur d'Alene Lake
The elevation of Coeur d'Alene Lake this morning is 2123.43, which is 4 feet 7 inches below normal maximum summer level. We expect the elevation of Coeur d'Alene Lake to decrease a small amount over the next couple of days and then stay about the same over the rest of the week.
Spokane River between Coeur d'Alene Lake and the Post Falls Bridge
The following information is concerning water levels between Coeur d'Alene Lake and the Post Falls bridge. The present water level at the bridge is 2119.6. We expect the elevation of the river above Post Falls to stay about about the same over the next week.
Spokane River below Post Falls
The flow in the Spokane River below Post Falls this morning is about 5860 cfs. We expect the discharge out of Post Falls to decrease a small amount over the next couple of days. The discharge out of Post Falls will depend upon the level of Coeur d'Alene lake. The discharge will decrease as the level of CDA lake decreases and the discharge will increase as the level of the lake increases. The flow in the river is determined by the outlet restriction at the mouth of the river at Coeur d’Alene lake.
Spokane River at Spokane
The flow in the Spokane River at Spokane this morning is 6170 cfs and we expect the flow in the river at Spokane to decrease over the next couple of days.
Lake Spokane at the Long Lake Dam
The elevation of Lake Spokane this morning is 1528.88 which is about 7 feet 2 inches below maximum level. We are expecting Lake Spokane levels to decrease a small amount over the next couple of days. We are expecting the lake to start to rise again later in the week.
