Hazard Reported Downriver From Glenwood Bridge

Posted By on Wed, Jul 18, 2012 at 3:21 PM

Floaters along the Boise River are being warned of what the Boise Fire Department calls "a significant water hazard" west of the Glenwood Bridge.

Three trees from the same root ball have fallen downriver from the bridge, creating an entrapment for river recreationists. River managers said the section of the river is typically considered wild, meaning it's left in a natural state to protect the health of the environment, and there are no immediate plans to clear the trees.

"This river runs right through the middle of our city," said Paul Roberts, Boise Fire division chief for special operations. "It's constantly changing, and any stretch of the river can be dangerous and pose hazards that are there one day that weren't there the day before."
