Description The project will modify the outlet to Kachess Reservoir to allow it to be drawn down approximately 80 feet lower than the current outlet.

Tapping into this currently unavalable storage will provide the ability to withdraw another 200,000 acre-feet of water from the lake, when needed, for downstream uses during drought conditions.
The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve, and enhance Washington’s environment. To help us meet that goal, please consider the environment before you print or request a copy.
