Part 1 of the 50th Anniversary story series for the Boise River Flood Control District #10
Boise River Flood Control District #10 was formed by a group of proactive farmers in December 1971. To commemorate Flood 10’s history, we created a 4-part series of stories and photos to inform and educate the public about how and why the district was formed, share many of the challenges that river managers faced then and now, including flooding and riverbank repairs, and collaborative efforts to manage the Boise River for the benefit of everyone in the future.
Who is Flood 10? What do they do? Flood District 10 conducts winter maintenance on the Boise River (from Plantation Island in Boise to Caldwell) to maintain the Boise River channel and prevent damage to private and public property. Flood #10 also works with private landowners on streambank repairs.
Here is our story series.
