Caution is advised for those recreating on the lower Clark Fork River on Sept. 3, as utility company Avista is building a new fish passage facility at Cabinet Gorge Dam.
Part of the project requires releases of water through the dam, coordinated to ensure safe and efficient completion of this work.
To increase public safety and awareness, signs have been posted at access sites along the river. Waterway users should always be alert to signs of such changes and exercise caution to keep safe.
For more information contact Eric Oldenburg, of Avista Utilities, at 406-847-1290.
While we have you ...
... if you appreciate that access to the news, opinion, humor, entertainment and cultural reporting in the Sandpoint Reader is freely available in our print newspaper as well as here on our website, we have a favor to ask. The Reader is locally owned and free of the large corporate, big-money influence that affects so much of the media today. We're supported entirely by our valued advertisers and readers. We're committed to continued free access to our paper and our website here with NO PAYWALL - period. But of course, it does cost money to produce the Reader. If you're a reader who appreciates the value of an independent, local news source, we hope you'll consider a voluntary contribution. You can help support the Reader for as little as $1.
