Restoration of the Snake River

with Josh Johnson, Idaho Conservation League

Join Zoom Meeting

In this presentation, ICL’s Conservation Associate Josh Johnson will speak about the path forward for restoring the Snake River and the Eastern Snake River Plain aquifer. A clean and safe Snake River is key to a healthy and prosperous future for southern Idaho. Unfortunately, the Snake River and its aquifer are polluted by agricultural runoff and dairy waste. These pollutants, primarily phosphorus, and nitrate, threaten water quality across southern Idaho. This harmful trend of declining water quality creates problems for the river’s ecosystem and endangers the health of more than 300,000 Idahoans who rely on the aquifer for drinking water. ICL is working to improve water quality in southern Idaho and make the Snake River safe, swimmable, and fishable again.
