RIVERS — The level of Lake Roosevelt rose to an elevation of about 1264 feet today and lake levels are expected to continue rising over the next week into the 1272-1276 range.
Lake inflows began increasing a week ago as the spring runoff began from the Columbia River's headwaters (see chart).
However, note that flows of southern tributaries were already subsiding. The Coeur d'Alene River has been dropping rapidly this week (see chart).
St. Joe River flows also are plummeting (see chart).
