EPHRATA — The Grant County PUD hopes to save at least $425,000 by accelerating improvements to boat launches around the Wanapum Dam reservoir to take advantage of the historically low level of the Columbia River.

The reservoir has been drawn down 26 feet to take pressure off a crack, discovered Feb. 27, on part of the dam’s spillway.

Boat launches around the reservoir are now well above the water line, PUD spokesman Tom Stredwick said Tuesday in a news release.
