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.
Excess levels of E. coli indicate the presence of human or animal waste and that pathogenic microorganisms may be present, which pose a threat to public health. If ingested, these microorganisms can cause diarrhea, fever, and vomiting, particularly in infants, small children, and the elderly. The source of bacteria is unknown at this time.

Boise Mayor Bieter: Air Force might hold off on decommissioning Gowen Field’s A-10s
Boise Mayor Dave Bieter said he had only a few brief chances to speak to U.S. Air Force leaders about the fate of Gowen Field’s A-10 mission while in Montgomery, Ala., two weeks ago.
Nothing’s certain yet, Bieter said, but based on those conversations and others he’s had with people around the military, he believes the Air Force might delay its move to ground the 22 A-10s based at Gowen Field, the Idaho Air Guard base, for a few years.
It all depends on the budgets Congress sets, Idaho National Guard spokesman Tim Marsano said.
