The Montana Water Summit 2020

The second biennial Montana Water Summit!
March 3-4, 2020 in Helena

Land and water are inextricably linked: What happens to one resource impacts the other. Yet, despite this simple concept, land management and water management are poorly integrated and increasingly complex.

What happens to a river when its floodplain is developed? Does converting land from agricultural production impact late season streamflow in the neighboring county? Why do local jurisdictions employ land use, but not water use, planners?

Can we meet the needs of a growing population and adapt to climate change by more thoughtfully integrating land and water management and policy? Yes! Solutions, though complex, abound at both regional and local scales. Join diverse Montanans and invited speakers from a variety of backgrounds to explore these hot spots - and solutions – at the land and water nexus.

We are pleased to offer American Planning Association (APA) Certification Maintenance (CM) credits for land use planners and Continuing Education Credits (CECs) for water and wastewater operators.
