Due to the microbrew beer boom in recent years, the areas between Homedale, Wilder, Greenleaf, and Parma, Idaho have seen a lot of fields converted to hops in the last five years. Once hops are harvested, they must be separated from the vine (or picked), dried, and baled. Some beers used these dried hops in their beers, some use pelletized hops, where the dried hops are compressed into about 1/3 of their normal size.

Cave Bay Community Services, Inc. (CBCS) unveiled an expanded, fully permitted and compliant wastewater treatment, storage and land application facility to the public on October 8, 2015 . The facility which is located in the Cave Bay community, six miles north of Worley, Idaho, will provide wastewater treatment for up to 212 homes.
In 2011, CBCS was faced with a potential catastrophe – wastewater in the 2.6 million gallon lagoon was close to breaching a low portion of the embankment which, had it overflowed, could have sent wastewater into Coeur d’Alene Lake.
