Boise River to Flood Tomorrow
The water is rising on the Boise River and some flooding problems are expected tomorrow. Here's what you need to be aware of.
Today the water in the Boise River is expected to grow by 250 cubic feet per per second until it reaches the flood stage level of 7,000 cubic feet which is expected to happen tomorrow.
According to the Idaho Statesman, some sections of the Greenbelt will be submerged and impassable. Erosion on the river banks is also an expected problem from the flooding.
Minor flooding is expected on the low lying banks of Eagle Island.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will actually be increasing flows from Lucky Peak Dam; apparently the releases are necessary to avoid increased flooding in the Spring.
Homes are not expected to be threatened by the flood, and I'm wondering how all this extra water is going to affect the float season this summer?
