Magic Reservoir, impounded just above Shoshone Ice Caves, is used for irrigation. The water-table change map of the unconfined aquifer shows changes in the water table at a ft interval; negative values indicate a decline in ground-water level between the partial-development and October water-table maps, and positive values indicate a rise in ground-water levels.

Dashed lines indicate uncertainty in either the partial. After 18 months of construction the new Big Wood River Bridge opened in September GeoEngineers’ geotechnical investigations and recommendations for the retaining walls and pavement design were critical to completing ITD’s wider and more environmentally friendly bridge, capable of carrying a much higher volume of traffic.
