In 1978, the Board of Natural Resources and Conservation granted water reservations to 14 Conservation Districts (CDs) in the Yellowstone River basin. Ten CDs were granted reservations in the upper Missouri River basin in 1992, and eleven CDs were given reservations in the lower and Little Missouri River basins in 1994. Some CDs have reservations in more than one basin.  Each of these CDs administers its reservation for use by individuals within the district. Please work with your CD on the application below.
