Columbia River Advisory

I am writing to advise you of changes to the discharge rates from the Hugh L. Keenleyside Dam and Arrow Lakes Hydro. Starting at approximately 3:00 p.m. on Friday, November 14, the total discharge rate from Arrow Lakes Reservoir will increase from approximately 708 cubic metres per second (25,000 cubic feet per second) to approximately 1,529 cubic metres per second (54,000 cubic feet per second) by 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, November 15. When combined with the outflows from the Kootenay River, Columbia River levels at Birchbank are expected to rise by 1.7 metres (5.5 feet) from the current levels. Please make safety your top priority when planning activities near the Columbia River
