Idaho Water Supply Keeps Getting Better

As of midday Monday, Sun Valley Resort received 25 inches of snow in the last 24 hours.  And while it was snowing in the mountains, much of the valleys received rain. Water supply specialist Ron Abramovich says so much rain and snow have fallen across the state this month, we’ve already received our March allotment of precipitation. That happened in  the first 20 days of the month. Any additional precipitation is an added bonus.   Some are wondering if we’re getting too much.   Just last week, the Weiser River flowed almost three feet above flood stage. Even so, Abramovich says the recent moisture is good.  It puts our snowpack at near average or a little above, so we’re looking good.  On Monday, the Bureau of Reclamation and the Army Corps of Engineers increased flows from Lucky Peaky Dam to make sure they don’t overfill the reservoirs too soon. Water managers anticipate that a full supply of irrigation water will be available this season.  Officials are advising people to be aware of the danger associated with the increased flows.
