Southern Idaho Water Quality Study Raises Alarm About Farm, Dairy Practices

Sep 1, 2020


The Eastern Snake Plain Aquifer is a critical drinking water source for southern and eastern Idaho. More than 300,000 Idahoans rely on the natural underground storage to provide clean, safe water every day. But due to a combination of farming and agricultural practices in the Magic Valley, the water source is in danger of contamination. 

That’s according to an updated report from the Idaho Conservation League. Josh Johnson wrote the study for ICL and joins Idaho Matters today to talk more about the report.
