On this episode of Elemental Idaho, and in preparation for an upcoming report on water quality in the Boise River, we rebroadcast an episode from 2015 about a $12 million water treatment facility that was built and is now run by the City of Boise, designed to drastically reduce phosphorus in the Boise River before it reaches the Snake River. What is the Dixie Drain project, why is it considered innovative, and what is its potential as a model for other cities?
You can listen to the original broadcast of this program here.
Boise public radio recently broadcast an update to the project, which I noted on the program. You can see that article here.
