Garden City flooding recedes after downed tree drifts but will rising flows cause more?
A downed tree in the Boise River sent flood waters onto 46th, 47th and 48th streets of Garden City on May 5. The tree drifted downstream, and the flood waters receded. Water managers plan to increase river levels from 8,800 cfs to 9,500 cfs by Tuesday, May 16. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers says 45th, 46th and 47th streets in Garden City will flood next week. But city Public Works Director Colin Schmidt is optimistic that flooding of streets won't occur below 10,000 cfs.By Katy Moeller firstname.lastname@example.org
