Idaho agriculture relies on spring and summer snowmelt.

 

  

Since 1932, the Natural Resources Conservation Service has collected and published updates about snowpack, precipitation, reservoirs and streamflow in Idaho. This data in part helps the agriculture industry prepare for the coming months. 

The April ‘Water Supply Outlook Report’ for Idaho was just released, and joining Idaho Matters to help us understand what it says is Danny Tappa, a hydrologist for the snow survey in Idaho.  

As COVID-19 cases spread through the U.S. and Idaho, we’re committed to keeping you updated and informed. You can get updated info on cases, closures and how to stay healthy at any time on our Coronavirus news blog.
