Meeting Description


The Idaho Fall Water Supply Outlook is a one-day meeting held annually to recap previous water year conditions and provide outlook information for the coming water year.  The recap of the water supply from last year provides insight on how climate impacted the accumulation and melt of the year’s snowpack, timing of irrigation demand, and how much storage water remained by the end of the water-year.  The outlook information for the coming year reviews oceanic conditions and how anomalies in the Pacific could impact the coming year’s snowpack/water supply.  These meetings are critical for identifying vulnerabilities and opportunities for increasing drought and climate resilience in the agricultural, power, and recreational sectors of Idaho’s economy that are dependent on our water resources.
