Most Of Idaho Is In Drought. Here's Some Tips To Conserve Water

As of Sunday, the three reservoirs that hold the water that feeds the Boise River system were at just 55% capacity. One of the three — Arrowrock Dam — is at 21%. Drought is here in Idaho and across the West, and the Ada County Soil and Water Conservation District is holding two classes on how to hold on to some of that water.

For horse owners — or anyone who has a pasture — this Tuesday’s Zoom class looks at how best to conserve water for your land. And next Tuesday, it’s all about conserving water for your lawn or garden.

Idaho Matters talks with three people who know a lot about this topic: Jessica Harrold is the Program Coordinator with the Ada Soil & Water Conservation District, Gabrielle Krak is with Bee Wise Gardens and Alayne Blickle is with Horses For Clean Water.

As Senior Producer of our live daily talk show Idaho Matters, I’m able to indulge my love of storytelling and share all kinds of information (I was probably a Town Crier in a past life!). My career has allowed me to learn something new everyday and to share that knowledge with all my friends on the radio.
