High River Flows Close Boat Launch 6/1/2011
High Columbia River flows have forced Chelan County PUD to close one boat launch until further notice, and the PUD is urging caution for anyone using its parks near the river. The boat launch at Kirby Billingsley Hydro Park, south of East Wenatchee, has been closed due to high water that is covering the trail, the boat launch ramp and forcing closure of a restroom.

Chelan PUD reservoirs are the smallest on the Columbia River, and high flows coming from Grand Coulee Dam and Chief Joseph Dam upstream must be passed through as the water arrives.

Those interested can check river flow volumes on the Chelan County PUD website Instantaneous flows at the PUD's two dams on the Columbia are tracked and posted there.
