As you know Tuesdays windstorm has caused
extensive damage to the area. The following
pump houses are without power as a result of the

East Seasons Acres (Kootenai Electric)
Ohio Match (Kootenai Electric)
Hayden Haven/Gem Shores (Kootenai Electric)

Atlas Acres (Kootenai Electric)
Clarkview Booster Station (Avista)
Hayden Orchards (Avista)
Twin Lakes – Tree Farm Wells (Avista)
Twin Lakes – Echo Beach (Kootenai Electric)

Twin Lakes is up, but reservoirs are low, you need
to be conservative until the reservoirs are

No power generally means no water! If you are in
one of these areas and you have water it is coming
from a reservoir. Unfortunately we cannot SUPPLY
the reservoir due to the loss of power at the well
site, so you will only have water until the reservoir
is depleted.

PLEASE if you have water, use it conservatively,
you may also want to draw some water to have in
case your reservoir is depleted.

STOCK UP on bottled water to get you through
this trying time.

Kootenai Electric’s website has indicated that it
could be a week before some of the areas are
back in service.

Avista has placed the Twin Lakes Tree Farm
well site on their priority list.

We have installed generators at many of our well
sites, and will continue to do so as funds permit.
Phones are back up! Another yay!!
