Boise River flows to increase Monday

newsroom@idahostatesman.comJune 8, 2014 

— Boise River flows will increase from 650 cubic feet per second (cfs) to 1,350 cfs this week.

Flows will remain at this higher level through mid-July and then return to normal mid-summer irrigation levels of about 700 cfs.

The Bureau of Reclamation will increase flows from Lucky Peak dam on Monday by about 300 cfs and Tuesday flows will increase an additional 400 cfs to provide additional water for salmon migration in the lower Snake and Columbia rivers.

Boise River users can track real-time flows online via the Reclamation’s Pacific Northwest Region Hydromet website.
