Episode Narrative The Snake River at Blackfoot was above flood stage from June 1st through June 19th. It was below flood stage from June 13th through June 16th. Water levels reached moderate flood stage and crested at 11.79 feet on the evening of June 10th. There was widespread floodign in the Riverton area resulting in the closure of Riverton Road with several homes threatened. A number of homes and access roads were threatened in the Thomas area near Riverbend Road and Wilson Road. Berm construction and sandbagging appeared to have been successful in those areas. Archery Range Road near the Rose Overpass was submerged and impassable for a period. In Blackfoot, sub-water seepage into Jensens Grove caused minor flooding of the park. Flooding of lowland and agricultural fields occurred adjacent to the river between Rose and Tilden Bridge.
