pudRecreational users may notice changes in river levels  

WENATCHEE – With the four largest generating units offline at Rocky Reach Dam, Chelan County PUD advises the public that there could be unpredictable flows, spill and river fluctuations from both upstream and downstream from Rocky Reach and Rock Island dams through the winter.

Also, there may be increased turbulence in the area just below Rocky Reach as the result of spilling.  Boaters and fishermen need to be cautious and stay well-away from the dam for safety.

The four largest generating units at Rocky Reach Dam were shut down following the discovery of a deep crack in a stainless steel rod that delivers oil to a servo motor in one of the units. All units have the same design features and the shutdown was to ensure these units could be operated safely.

sheriffsmAs reported earlier last week, the Chelan County Sheriff's Office is investigating a stabbing which occurred on early Sunday morning, October 13th at the Post Office Tavern in Leavenworth.  An altercation ensued at the entrance and the suspect initially fled the scene on foot toward the area of Commercial Street. 

Anyone who has information, and has not already talked to Law Enforcement about this incident is asked to call Detective Mitch Matheson at 509-667-6843.

Thank you,

John Wisemore
