BOISE, ID - A disaster declaration has been signed for Idaho County on behalf of the City of White Bird. Governor Butch Otter signed the declaration because the small north-central Idaho town has been without water since late last month. White Bird residents are on a public water system served by two wells but that system depressurized, cutting off water completely.
BOISE, ID - UPDATE: The DEQ has advised that the boil water advisory for White Bird has been lifted. Residents are now free to drink the water.
