Programs, Projects, and Studies


Water Management Bureau hydrologists participate in a variety of technical activities and scientific investigations with the goal of supporting improved water management throughout the state.

Water Resource Studies

Hydrologists have conducted watershed resource studies throughout Montana in response to local requests. In general these studies characterize the hydrology of the watershed and quantify demands placed on the system.  Ultimately, these studies lead to a better understanding of the water resources and can be used to  inform  water management and drought planning.

Water Measurement Program

The Water Measurement Program provides technical information and expertise regarding the installation of measuring and controlling devices on diversions from streams where chronic dewatering causes water use disputes or severe dewatering impacts.

Stream Gaging Program

The Montana Department of Natural Resources and Conservation (DNRC) is committed to providing high quality ‘real-time’ hydrologic data and information to support all water users in the management and use of Montana’s water resources.
