Water Supply Committee Meets Today
BOISE--Idaho received above normal precipitation in March, which has helped to maintain snow packs in most areas of the state to near or above normal. However, some southern Idaho reservoirs may not completely fill depending on the weather this spring and the early season demand for irrigation.
Members of the Idaho Water Supply Committee will meet today at the Idaho Water Center to review the latest data and formulate a comprehensive water picture for the 2008 growing season.
The annual mid-April meeting is one of the most important water supply meetings during the water year. April 1 traditionally marks the end of the winter mountain snow pack accumulation period. Between April 1 and April 15 stream flow forecasts are refined and growing season water supplies are assessed.
Although the threat of spring flooding has deceased, there is still the possibility of flooding in North Idaho and in the Weiser River basin. Information will also be provided at the meeting concerning possible spring time flooding.
The Idaho Water Supply Committee includes water managers and hydrology experts from both the private and public sectors.
