Public Hearings: Boise River Management Plan

by Liz Paul, Idaho Rivers United
Public hearings on the draft Boise River Management Plan are next Monday and Tuesday. As Outside Magazine discovered, the Boise River is the best, but good things don't come easy. The best river deserves the best management and I invite you to help shape the future of the Boise River and its companion aquifer.
Make the good times last.

Make the Good Times Last
Boise was just named one of America's top ten river towns by Outside Magazine. I totally support this recognition - the Boise River is the best.
Not only do we enjoy some of the best urban recreation in the world courtesy of the Boise River, we brew killer coffee and beer and make fine wine with water from the Boise River. And let's not overlook the tomato growing, the golfing, the shower taking, the toilet flushing, the car washing and our bird-filled canopy of green trees. The Boise River is the best! Let's keep it that way.

The Idaho Water Resource Board has released a draft plan for the management of the Boise River and the underground aquifer, and they're accepting public comment until September 30.
The Boise River is the best and it deserves the best management possible.
No New Boise River Dam
The draft Plan supports further study of a new water storage dam in the upper Boise River. Watch our lively brand-new 2-minute video about the upper Boise River - it's no place for a new dam.

Only the Best for the Best
Make sure the Boise River gets the best management possible. Now is your chance to let managers know how important the Boise River is to you. Attend one of the hearings and submit your comments in person or in writing. Now is your chance to make the good times last.
