Reservoir Levels Weather Hydrology

Lucky Peak Lake is a reservoir located in the Boise River Basin in Idaho. The dam that created the lake was built in 1955 to provide flood control and hydroelectric power. The lake is fed by the Boise River and snowpack from surrounding mountains. Agricultural uses of the water include irrigation of crops along the Boise River and hydroelectric power generation. Recreational uses of the lake include boating, fishing, and swimming. The lake is a popular destination for locals and tourists alike. The snowpack in the mountains provides a critical source of water for the reservoir, which in turn provides water for downstream users. The lake is an important part of the hydrology of the Boise River Basin and plays a critical role in managing water resources in the area.
