Southern Idaho Attorneys Plan to Fight Water Call

Benito Baeza

TWIN FALLS, Idaho (AP) — Attorneys for 14 south-central Idaho cities have formally organized to fight an Idaho Department of Water Resources’ order that could reduce how much water the cities receive. The Times-News reports the attorneys made the decision on Thursday and plan to tell their respective city councils they’ll fight the water call order as well as future orders by the state. Idaho Department of Water Resources’ director Gary Spackman signed an order in January telling 2,300 water-right holders they’ll have to shut down irrigation if they can’t reach a compromise with Rangen Inc, a Hagerman-based fish farm and feed producer. The Idaho Groundwater Appropriators have requested a stay on the curtailment order. The 14 attorneys have joined the groundwater pumpers’ request.
