The Bureau of Reclamation will increase the water discharge from Lucky Peak Dam Monday, June 29, 2015, the bureau announced Friday. The Boise River flow will increase approximately 400 cubic feet per second to approximately 1,200 cfs through the city of Boise, according to a Bureau of Reclamation. The Boise River will remain at these higher levels through most of July and will return to normal midsummer flow at the end of July.


The increase in flow is to provide additional water for salmon migration in the lower Snake and Columbia rivers in accordance with NOAA Fisheries 2008 Upper Snake Biological Opinion, under the Endangered Species Act.
