The Bureau of Reclamation and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will soon be releasing more water along the Boise River.

Officials say they will be increasing the water flow daily - up to as much as ten times the normal flow -- along the Boise River beginning Tuesday, March 29, from current flows of 250 cubic-feet-per-second at the Glenwood Bridge to approximately 1,500 - 2,000 CFS by Friday, April 1.

Officials are warning Treasure Valley residents to exercise caution near the river while the increased flows are occurring.
