State Water Plan
Montana’s economy and quality of life rely on water for everything from agriculture, livestock, industry, fisheries, and recreation, to municipal and domestic uses. It is with this recognition of our dependence on water that the Department of Natural Resources and Conservation (DNRC) is proud to release the 2015 State Water Plan.
The 2015 State Water Plan is a synthesis of the vision and efforts of regional Basin Advisory Councils (BACs) established in Montana’s four main river basins: the Clark Fork/Kootenai, Upper Missouri, Lower Missouri, and the Yellowstone. DNRC has pulled together the work of the 80 members of the four BACs into a plan that addresses water management issues on a statewide basis.
