Abstract

The Boise River Project in southwestern Idaho comprises an area of about 333,000 acres of highly developed agricultural land. Precipitation in the irrigated valley averages about ten inches a year which is too low to support any but desert vegetation. Water for irrigation during the growing season is obtained from Arrowrock Reservoir located on the Boise River four miles above Moore Creek, and from Deer Flat Reservoir near Nampa. The deposition of sediment in the river‐channel, in irrigation‐canals, and in farm‐laterals has interfered with the normal operation of the irrigation‐system and has occasionally required the expenditure of considerable time and money for removal of the deposited material.
