Re:     Kootenai River Information (Boundary County)

Water level is continuing to ise and predicted to peak Sunday (6/11/06) in the afternoon. This does not mean that water is predicted to go over the dike/levee. Currently water level is forecasted to be below flood stage level.

The Army Corp of Engineers is continuing to place rock on the north side dike/levee in Bonners Ferry. The Army Corp of Engineers is working with local officials to provide technical assistance.

Boundary County is experiencing significant crop damage due to the ground water table rising in the lower farm ground.
