Coulee Dam, WA – The fish cleaning stations located throughout Lake Roosevelt National
Recreation Area will remain closed until further notice. While evaluating and trying to repair the
Fort Spokane fish cleaning station and associated septic system, it was discovered that the
accumulated oil from the fish remains have coated the sand in the drain field so thoroughly that
water can no longer filter through the sand and instead, sits on top and clogs the septic system.
To keep the existing fish cleaning station operational, the entire septic system would need to be
redesigned, including electrical engineering, more powerful motor, and installing a new drain
field. This is the third drain field at Fort Spokane destroyed by the fish oils in the past 30 years
and there is no available space for a fourth.
