I'm one of the householders in Boise who gets their water from water
company-owned wells. The last I knew, we didnt' know the status of the deep
aquifer. The shallow one has dropped. Many people are fortunate enough to
get irrigation water from one of the canals that cross the city. They do
come from a reservoir,a nd that has abundant water at this time. Margaret L
