SEATTLE -- Seattle City Light will be getting a chunk of power from a dam in northeast Washington for the next four decades thanks to a new agreement with federal regulators.

The power company says it's renewed a license to operate Boundary Dam for the next 42 years.

The dam generates about a quarter of the electricity for City Light which is about a million customers.

The order was issued Wednesday by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission and becomes final after all parties have a chance to review documents.

Boundary Dam is on the Pend Oreille River near Metaline Falls and was built in 1967.
