The Idaho Comprehensive State Water Plan
Idaho Comprehensive State Water Plan, developed by Idaho's Water Resource Board,
describes the designation of selected waterways in Idaho as protected rivers in Section 2D, entitled “STATE PROTECTED RIVER SYSTEM”.
Information concerning the Board, including a description of the current members,
their responsibilities and history, can be found by clicking on the logo at the top of this page.
Links to the individual basin plans can be found on our
Comprehensive Basin Planning
page. The link to the appropriate plan is also given on the pages which describe protection of a single stream – see the link below.
Alternatively, you can view the protection of a single stream
by selecting a river basin and then a stream.
The details of the protection for a given stream include those activities outlined in the Plan which are not allowed and an explanation of any exceptions to those protectections.
A link to the Plan for that specific river basin is given.
Additional information concerning terms of the designation, if any, are listed at the bottom of the page.
