Boise River Sets Yet Another Record For High Water Flow

Subscribe to Mix 106 on

This past weekend according to the Bureau of Reclamation, the Boise River hit it’s highest flow of the year topping out at just over 8,900 cubic feet per second. That is also the highest flow ever recorded since Lucky Peak dam was built. And sadly it puts us within the all-time record high of 10,000 cfs.


Flows have dropped back down to around 8,500 cfs, today, but we are once again a huge rain storm or a week of 80 degree weather of seeing that flow raise to above that season high. Keep in mind, official flood stage for the Boise River is only 7000cfs.

According to KTVB, the new levees built in Eagle by the Sun Roc Gravel Pit are  being tested with these new high flows and will continue to be tested through the end of May.

Residents near the Boise River in Eagle are still on high alert.

The city of Eagle will be holding a town hall meeting on Monday April 24 at 6 p.m. at Eagle City Hall to deal with questions residents might have about possible flooding and problem areas and what is being done to deal with all the flood possibilities.  The Eagle Fire department and Police will be on hand to answer questions residents may have.

Once again the Boise Fire Department continues to warn people to stay away from the river for now…it is cold and the current is very fast and anyone who does have to be rescued will charged personally for rescue costs.
