Koocanusa to peak in early August
South Country recreationalists can expect Koocanusa to be at its highest within the next couple weeks.
According to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, which manages Libby Dam at the bottom of Koocanusa, the water level in the reservoir is likely to be at its highest point in early August.
This week, the Engineers are reducing the amount of water released from Libby Dam in Montana, which should see Koocanusa reach its peak summer elevation of 2,454 feet within two weeks.
The reservoir is considered full at 2,549 feet, but the Army Corps knows that recreational users prefer the water level to be a little lower to allow for more beach space.
It’s expected that the reservoir will stay at this elevation for most of the month of August, before releases are increased.
