Metaline Falls, shown here below the northeastern Washington town of the same name, showed up for the first time in 27 years on Friday and Saturday, Sept. 10-11, 2010, during a maintenance project at Boundary Dam. The Pend Oreille River reservoir level was lowered from a normal high of 1,990 feet elevation down to 1,959 feet, exposing the falls which are upstream about 11 miles from the Dam.
