The Bureau of Reclamation will implement improved security measures at three Idaho dams. The three structures include:Dam Locations

  • Lower Embankment of the Deer Flat Dams, an off-storage facility that impounds Lake Lowell near Nampa, Idaho.
  • Anderson Ranch Dam, on the south fork of the Boise River, about 28 miles northeast of Mountain Home, Idaho.
  • Palisades Dam, on the south fork of the Snake River, about 55 miles southeast of Idaho Falls, Idaho.

Reclamation's long-term goal is to implement necessary corrective actions for security and safety, with minimal inconvenience to the affected public.
