Shoshone Falls In Full Glory

It’s a delicate balancing act: to keep the Snake River from overflowing and yet make room in upstream reservoirs in time for the belated spring runoff. The result is a spectacular view of Shoshone Falls with over 18,000 cubic feet of water going over it every second. The spectacle usually only happens in the spring of the year as the Bureau of Reclamation opens gates in upstream reservoirs to make room for the runoff. This year has been especially tricky as the runoff has been delayed by colder temperatures but still a lot of rain. BUREC officials don’t expect the runoff to peak until about mid-June this year. That means the view at Shoshone Falls should keep going for a while yet. Farmers are holding off on watering due to the extensive rainfall which also leaves more water in the river. Twin Falls Canal Company is only diverting about two thirds of its normal amount into Milner so far. Meanwhile, as Shoshone Falls shows off its magnificent plume, tourists are making their way to the site which city officials say is certainly an economic boon to the area.
