Idaho water levels
From the latest survey, Idaho snowpack levels stood at just below normal levels, despite a series of storms.
“So we had a really slow start in mountain snowpack building process, and then it all shifted on New Years. We had a decent storm move through and it hit almost the entire state. Prior to that storm, we were 50-60 percent of normal, with the exceptions of the far North and far South parts of the State,” said Hydrologist Dan Tappa of the Natural Resources and Conservation Service.
River basins along the state’s southern and northern borders have above-normal snowpack, according to Tappa. And Snowpacks ranged from 95 to 117 percent of normal snowpack along the Upper Snake River basin, and 69 to 99 percent of normal snowpack in central, western and northern regions.
