River managers plan to lower flows out of Lucky Peak Dam by 500 cubic feet per second on Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday, June 16-19 at 8 a.m.
Flows in the city of Boise, as measured at the Glenwood Bridge, will decrease to approximately 4,900 cfs by Monday afternoon, below the flood stage of 7,000 cfs.
The decrease in discharges from Lucky Peak is a result of a decreasing trend in inflows to the Boise system and adequate space in the reservoir system to store the remaining runoff.
Boise River reservoirs are at approximately 95 percent of capacity.
