Priest Lake Meeting Set for September 27

The Idaho Water Resources Board is seeking public comment as engineers enter the second phase of the Priest Lake Water Management Project, scheduling an open house for September 27 at Priest Lake Elementary School, Priest River, ID.

Staff from Mott MacDonald, the consulting engineers designing the project, as well as representatives from the Idaho Department of Water Resources and Bonner County, will be on hand at the open house to provide information and answer any questions the public may have.

Phase 2 of the Priest Lake Water Management Project will involve data collection, preliminary engineering design, regulatory permitting, and public stakeholder involvement related to three core improvements planned for Priest Lake resulting from Phase 1 of the project.

The first phase of the project involved a study completed in February 2018.

Results of the study included the following recommendations:

  • Temporarily raising the surface level of Priest Lake three to six inches during the recreational season of dry years and integrating real-time streamflow data to allow more operational flexibility;
  • Outlet Bay Dam structure improvements to the scour apron, modifying and strengthening gates, and electrical gate operation;
  • Replace the current existing porous breakwater with an impervious sediment retention feature and dredging a portion of the Thorofare channel.

Phase 2 is a continuation of the work, conclusions, and recommendations outlined in the Phase 1 report.

Russia’s leading maritime industry Media Group PortNews (www.portnews.ru) holds a traditional annual Congress “Hydraulic Engineering Structures and Dredging” in Moscow. 

The two-day Congress includes the 7th International Forum of Dredging Companies and the 3rd Technical Conference “Modern Solutions for Hydraulic Engineering”.

Infrastructure development is among the real sources of Russia’s economy growth. Construction of port facilities and new hydraulic engineering structures on the country’s inland waterways constitute an essential part of all infrastructure projects. It is important to take into account the best international practices to implement these projects effectively.

The program of the Congress will be devoted to the latest technologies for dredging and hydraulic engineering works. Speakers and delegates will refer to real projects to discuss specifics features of dredging works, as well as dedicated fleet and equipment involved.
