Sullivan Lake - What to Expect

In 2014 Pend Oreille Counties’ Public Utility District #1 constructed a cold-water by-pass at Sullivan Lake in Washington State. IDFG references this project as one that would be like the proposed Priest River Siphon. They are not!

The intake of this project is at the end of Sullivan Lake. Not 8,000 feet away, as proposed, Sullivan Lake can also be drawn down 60 feet making the construction less disruptive. Priest Lake can only be drawn down a little more than 3 feet!

Here is a document that describes that project. We don’t want this to happen to Outlet Bay or Priest Lake!
