POCATELLO, Idaho — The Idaho Department of Water Resources says any dam on the last free-flowing section of the Bear River in Franklin County is likely years away.
Spokeswoman Genna Ashley tells the Idaho State Journal in a story published Friday that it will be at least six months before the agency makes a recommendation.
The Twin Lakes Canal Company has filed an application to build a 700-foot-long, 108-foot-high dam in the Oneida Narrows near Preston in eastern Idaho.
The dam would create a reservoir with a surface area of 420 acres.
