The Idaho Kree Press. Wednesday. Kcbrujry 12. 1075- 12 Soil Conservation staff assists in snow surveys t ' A T . T U V V T I «»:-! i .. CALIIVVELL - Michael Ycrby of Ihe Soil Conservation Service at Caldwell. recently attended a snow survey school at Big Sky, Montana. The SCS staff at Caldii-ell assists annually in Ihe snow survey program held from January through May l, with . prime responsibility for (he Silver City and South Mountain snow courses, in addition lo Ihe entire counties of Owyhec. Elmore, Ada, Gem. and Boise. According lo Ihe SCS. all irrigation water in southwestern Idaho comes from melting snow- on the mountain water sheds. This melted snow-water flows down rivers and canals until it reaches homes and farms. Since Canyon County farmers usually have adequate water supplies lo raise good crops every year according lo the SCS, residents are not loo concerned about snow surveys and water supply forecasts. What does interest residents is the prospect of flooding along Ihe Boise River, Ycrby points out. Information gained from measuring the snow depth at high mountain snow stations, plus records from previous years on storm frequency und water yield, arc used to decide how much water can be expected in the Boise River Reservoirs. This adjustment of reservoir storage is a difficult and touchy problem, Yerby explains. If the situation looks like there may be excess water, Ihe reservoirs are lowered through the river until a safe level is reached. This early release of water may cause some local flooding along the river through Ada and Canyon Counties but it averts a much greater problem later on. Perhaps if too much waler is released, the reservoir will not fill and area farms are deprived of adequate irrigation water for Ihe coming season. If too little water is released there is danger that a heavy storm may dump a lot of snow on the watershed and cause Ihe reservoir lo fill too quickly. Then excess water has to be spilled from the reservoirs to keep (hem from breaking over and flooding the cily of Boise. This release can cause heavy local flood damage alone Ihe Michael Yerby, SCS, explains soil surveys river. Snow surveys and water supply forecasts help government officials manage Ihe Boise River and its reservoirs at a safe and useful level. Without these water forecasts, management of the reservoirs would be very difficult and dangerous. Yerby comments.

The main purpose of the group is lo study the district's problems and investigate possible means of solving them.
