RESERVOIRS — The level of Lake Roosevelt was 1241.90 this moring and continuing to drop about 1.5 feet a day. That rate forecast to continue at least through the rest of the month to reach the flood control elevation of 1220.2.

The plan could change, since there's still an above-average snowpack remaining in the upper Columbia River drainages.

Next week the inflows into Lake Roosevelt are expected to increase.
