Boil Water Order March 22nd
Boil Order Advisory Notice for immediate distribution. This notice should be sent to all customers as well as posted in public places such as the Tavern and the Post Office etc.
Boil Water Advisory Notice Starting on 3-22-2020
Boil Your Water Before Using
Bring tap water to a rolling boil, boil for one minute, and cool before using or use bottled water. Boiled or bottled water should be used for drinking, making ice, washing dishes, brushing teeth, and preparing food until further notice.
This Boil Water Advisory Notice applies to The Yellow Pine Water System
After the turbidity of the treated water has fallen below then required limit, the boil advisory can be lifted. I anticipate that it will take just a few days to meet both criteria.

Yellow Pine Tavern is closed due to COVID-19 fears
Tavern will be closed til further notice. Will have gas available as well as take out beer, pop, candy, chips, pizza. Call 208 739-7086 or go to 355 Yellow Pine Ave. House across street from the Tavern next to the Silver Dollar.

South Fork Road Restrictions

Lower South Fork Salmon River Closed to Rafting March 28 – June 30
The Lower South Fork of the Salmon River corridor begins at the confluence with the Secesh River, and ends at the confluence with the Salmon River. This segment of the corridor is approximately 37 miles long and extends from the low water mark on either side of the river only. This area does not include any land outside of the low water mark within each river corridor.
