Idaho Water Outlook Better

Benito Baeza

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Officials from irrigation districts in southwestern Idaho say the state’s water supply outlook is improving thanks to a series of snow and rain storms that hit the region in March and April.

Numbers from the Natural Resources Conservation Service show March precipitation was 163 percent of normal in the Boise basin. Reservoir storage on the Boise system was 107 percent of average and 64 percent of capacity on April 1.

Last year, many irrigation districts in the Boise region had to stop delivering water about a month early because of a water shortage. But this year, the water supply outlook improved dramatically from January to March 1, and the spring storms since then have some predicting a normal water year for irrigators.
