Idaho’s Water Outlook Shows Improvement

Benito Baeza

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Farmers and water managers are more optimistic about Idaho’s water woes after a series of storms rolled through the state this month. The National Resources Conservation Service offered a dire outlook for Idaho in its first two reports of the year, warning that the state’s reservoirs and snowpack were too low to ensure enough water for 2014. But a weather system called the Pineapple Express began dumping wet snow and rain across the state earlier this month, and now water managers are revising their outlook. NRCS hydrologist Ron Abramovich says the Boise Basin has reached 70 percent of its average snowpack level, the minimum amount necessary to meet the year’s irrigation demand. Abramovich also expects good summer flows for boaters on the Salmon, Payette and Snake rivers this year.
