Those managing water flow in the Boise River Basin say they plan to keep the river at its current level for the foreseeable future.
The river is been flowing at roughly 1,800 cubic feet per second at the Glenwood Street bridge in Boise. The flow last week was around 300 cfs and then increased steadily over the weekend.
Snake River Area Office Water Operations Manager Brian Sauer says the outflow at Lucky Peak reached 1,800 cfs for the first time this season at 8 a.m. Monday. Flood level is 7,000 cfs.
