Henry’s Fork Watershed Council Field Tour 

The Henry’s Fork Watershed Council held its annual field tour on August 9. About 25 participants met in Ashton to begin the tour, but more people joined later in the day.

The tour started with a trip to one of Idaho Power’s remote cloud-seeding sites in Island Park, where meteorologist Derek Blestrud explained the science and goals of the cloud-seeding program. Full implementation of ground- and aircraft-based operations in the upper Snake River basin is expected to increase annual streamflow by 400,000 acre-feet.

Island Park Reservoir Update

What flows can we expect out of Island Park Reservoir this fall and winter?

At last week’s Drought Management Planning meeting, stakeholders agreed to a reduction in flows out of Island Park Dam, with a goal of 60 cfs outflow by mid-October.

This process began over the weekend with a reduction in outflow by 200 cfs, and additional reductions of approximately 50 cfs will occur each week after that.

These results will be important for predicting which reaches of the river will be most affected, and to what extent, during periods of high sediment delivery from Island Park reservoir.
