OROVILLE — Aesthetics of Similkameen Falls must be considered if the Okanogan County PUD rebuilds the Enloe Dam to generate power, the Pollution Control Hearings Board ruled last week.

The board affirmed the state Department of Ecology’s water quality certification for the project, adding the condition that aesthetic values for both the dam and the falls will be monitored and evaluated if the dam is rebuilt to hold more water.
