KETCHUM, Idaho (AP) - A stream alteration of the Big Wood River in central Idaho south of Ketchum to protect homes hasn’t worked as expected.

The Idaho Mountain Express reports (https://bit.ly/2glR1tY) in a story on Friday that Blaine County commissioners as a result are allowing a landowner to try to fix the problem.

Commissioners approved a plan that involves work to keep the river out of a bypass channel.

The county is requiring a $3,500 bond to make sure proper vegetation is installed in the spring.
