Ample water supply predicted BOISE (UPI) - Idaho will have sufficient water supplies for Ihe 1975 irrigation season wherever (here are adequate storage f a c i l i t i e s , Ihc U.S. D e p a r t m e n t of Agriculture predicted. The prediction, from Ihe A g r i c u l t u r e Department and Soil Conservation Service, was based' on Feb. I streamflow forecasts. Shortages may be experienced on small streams with no storage in Ihe southern part of the slate, the report noted. Supplies could be marginal on the Lost und Wood rivers unless precipitation shows a marked improvement during the rcmnindcr of the winter.

Valley p r e c i p i t a t i o n lor November 1974 through January 1975 was above normal on the Ctcarwater. f e n d Oreille- Spokane and Kootenai River watersheds and below average on all other drainages.
