RIVERS -- Spring flows have subsided enough to allow the river recreation on the Spokane River near Post Falls, Avista said today in a release.
River recreation is now permitted again in the area between the Spokane Street Bridge and the boater safety cables located just upstream of the Post Falls Dam.
River flows have dropped sufficiently to allow all of the spillway gates at the Post Falls Dam hydroelectric facility to be closed, Avista says.
The City of Post Falls boat launch and swim beach at Q’emiln Park are opening to the public today as well.
Avista expects summer operation at the dam to continue through Labor Day, as long as weather conditions allow.
