In the middle of working farms between the towns of Notus and Parma, the city of Boise owns a 49 acre field. In March the city plans to start construction there on a unique project to reduce phosphorus in the Boise and Snake Rivers. It's generally referred to as the Dixie Drain Project.
The site for the upcoming project is close enough to the Boise River that you can see the trees along its banks a little to the north. In the other direction there’s a bluff that disappears into the horizon. But the key feature is the water that runs through the site and empties into the river.
