The Pend oreille Salmonid Recovery Team's Technical Advisory Group (TAG) will be meeting on November 16th to discuss and develop an implementation schedule of projects for the next several years. The meeting will be held at the Kalispel Tribe's Camas Wellness Center in Usk from 9am-1pm. This is an important step for the Team since we have not had an implementation schedule for projects to date. This should streamline the overall project selection process and allow sponsors the ability to anticipate projects selection.

Seattle City Light is completing a maintenance project at Boundary Dam on the Pend Oreille River requiring the lowering of the reservoir behind the dam twice in September. The project is focused on the maintenance of a sluice gate on the dam. During the lowest elevation periods of this project, Metaline Falls located upstream of the Dam, will be briefly exposed. The reservoir will be lowered up to 30 ft between Sept. 15-17, raised again to 1990 ft by Sept. 19 and briefly then lowered to an elevation of 1960 ft by 9 a.m. on Sept 20. During the last lowering event the Falls should be exposed for a period of 5 hours providing a unique viewing opportunity. If you would like more information on Boundary Dam, this project or the best times to view the Falls, please visit the Seattle City Light  Boundary Project site.
