BOISE, Idaho -- The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the Bureau of Reclamation will begin lowering the pool elevation of Lucky Peak Reservoir on Monday, August 17. The lowering of Lucky Peak Reservoir follows a typical end of season reservoir drawdown for irrigation as experienced in prior years. Lucky Peak Reservoir pool began lowering on August 14 in 2018 and on August 18 in 2019.
Currently, the Boise River System reservoirs are at 73 percent of capacity. Near normal to slightly above normal carryover is projected in the Boise River System reservoirs at the end of the irrigation season.
