Drone footage captured a 600-foot flood diversion tube installed and action in the Eagle and Garden City neighborhoods of Boise, Idaho, to keep water from the Boise River from flooding homes. The tube was made by AIRE Industrial Spill Containment and was installed by the Ada County’s Engineering Division and Boise River Flood Control District 10. The Army Corps of Engineers previously built a 4,000-foot temporary levee near Eagle Island to contain the Boise River, which had risen above the flood level of 6,500 cubic-feet-per-second and is currently around 8,500-to-9,000 in Ada County. .
