Public Health Prevention Tip: Water quality monitoring reveals high bacteria count in Lucky Peak Reservoir at Robie Creek Beach

Posted by Sarah Pokorney on June 26, 2015 at 9:30am 0 Comments

BOISE — Water quality monitoring by the US Army Corps of Engineers has identified E. coli bacteria levels at Robie Creek Beach that exceed the level considered safe for public swimming beaches. Robie Creek Beach is in the Mores Creek arm of Lucky Peak Reservoir.

Boise Mayor Bieter: Air Force might hold off on decommissioning Gowen Field’s A-10s
