Those record breakers occurred on Sept. 1, 1912 and in 1997 when flows hovered around 7,000 and 7,500 cubic feet per second . Currently flows are around 4,000 cfs. Twin Falls City Parks and Recreation Director Dennis Bowyer, says flows are expected to stay at about this level through the rest of 2011.
