Managers of the Boise River from all over the Treasure Valley converged in Eagle Friday.

One of the state's largest flood districts brought in several experts to weigh in on future management and development.

Flood managers are pushing for a master plan that involves multiple jurisdictions.

"They just bring to the table different approaches and we need to look at all of those and see what will best work for what we're mandated to do and then how we can best help the community," says Bill Clayton, Boise River Management Flood District #10 chairman.

Over the next year, district #10 staff will compile their five-year plan.

Clayton says water management is always a threat as we head into Spring. If the dams get too full, they have to let water out. It all depends on how the snowpack melts.
