U.S. Army Corps Of Engineers To Starting Filling Dworshak Reservoir This Weekend

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will start filling Dworshak Reservoir near Orofino this weekend.

Release from Dworshak Dam will be reduced starting Saturday night to fill the last 10 feet of the reservoir.  The move will drop the Clearwater River by about a foot.  The corps normally fills the reservoir for the 4th of July before releasing more water during the summer to cool the Clearwater for migrating fish.
