Okanogan PUD evaluates removal of Enloe Dam

OKANOGAN - The Okanogan County PUD Commissioners passed Resolution No. 1775 supporting a process to evaluate potential Enloe Dam removal, as outlined in the memorandum that was prepared by Richard Roos-Collins of the Water and Power Group PC. 

The resolution states the board determined the memo is consistent with the PUD’s criteria for proposals to evaluate removal of Enloe Dam and emphasizes key points that must be met for PUD staff to effectively collaborate with the process.

In other business July 25, the board:

  • Heard that construction activities have concluded for the Enloe Dam Safety Repair and Maintenance Project. There will be intermittent activities this fall, as part of the comprehensive dam safety inspection.
  • Heard that power sales are continuing to be above budget in June and July for wholesale, and through May for retail. August is normally the tightest month, but the extra water this spring has set the PUD in a good position for hydropower resources.
  • Heard that with fiber finally in stock, the broadband department is getting caught up with work to connect more customers – a total of 3,898 end users are now on the PUD fiber backbone system through retail service providers.
  • Heard mid-year reports from several departments, including regarding power resources, state and federal compliance, information systems, human resources and communications.
