  • Boise River Flows to Increase

    97 hitsgrant amaral
    The Bureau of Reclamation and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers are increasing flows from Lucky Peak Dam because of above-normal winter precipitation in the Boise River drainage. Flows through the City of Boise will increase from the current flow of 240 cubic-feet-per-second (cfs) to approximately 750 cfs on Monday, February 13. Incremental increases are expected through the week, resulting in a flow on Friday, February 17 of approximately 2,000 cfs. These releases are necessary to help reduce the risk of flooding later in the spring, which can happen with rapidly melting snow and seasonal precipitation.
