The Lower Monumental reservoir was raised in February 1969. The Little Goose reservoir was raised in February 1970. Within a year, 66 miles of the Snake River became navigable. Barging took advantage of this almost immediately. Two grain terminals were constructed near Central Ferry in the Little Goose reservoir and 125,000 tons of wheat moved downriver in Little Goose’s first year of operation.
