Sandbagging the Rising Kootenai June 25, 2006
The call went out on June 25, 2006: The Kootenai was rising, and help was needed to keep it within its
banks and out of downtown Bonners Ferry. People came from all over the county to volunteer their
help in sandbagging the river bank at its lowest downtown point--near the Kootenai River Inn.
Were you there that day?
