Footnotes ...

<1>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Nampa - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<2>Area code (587) is an overlay for area code (780).
<3>The Canadian Postal Code consists of 6 characters, where the first three characters are the 'Forward Sortation Area (FSA)', with the last three characters being the 'Local Delivery Unit (LDU)'. The Canadian Postal Codes were created as a way of grouping addresses to make delivery more efficient. So keep in mind that any given Postal Code is only 'loosely' associated with a community (such as Nampa). The boundaries of the Postal Code can be changed, re-assigned, eliminated or overlapped with other Postal Codes. When looking for a Postal Code, whether Nampa or elsewhere, it's always best to check the website of the Canada Post / Postes Canada.
