...HIGH WATER ON THE COLVILLE RIVER DELTA...

HIGH WATER LEVELS AND BANKFULL CONDITIONS ALONG THE COLVILLE
RIVER DELTA WILL GRADUALLY DIMINISH THROUGH THE WEEKEND. ICE
REMAINS IN SOME CHANNELS IN THE DELTA BUT IT IS NOT EXPECTED TO
JAM OR CAUSE WATER LEVELS TO RISE OVERBANK. A DRAMATIC WARMUP OVER
THE MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND AND INTO NEXT WEEK WILL MELT THE
REMAINING SNOWPACK IN THE COLVILLE RIVER BASIN...BUT ANOTHER
SIGNIFICANT RISE FROM THE SNOWMELT RUNOFF IS NOT ANTICIPATED.
