Preparing for Drought: Blackfoot Water Conservation Strategy, May 13

  • When: Thursday, May 13 from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m.
  • Where: Corvallis Grange Hall, Dutch Hill Road, Corvallis, Montana

The Bitter Root Water Forum is hosting representatives from the Blackfoot Challenge for a public presentation on the Blackfoot Water Conservation Strategy.  Brian McDonald, Program Coordinator, together with members of the Blackfoot Drought Committee will present on how the Blackfoot watershed plans for and manages water resources during drought years.

The Blackfoot Drought Committee was formed in 2000 in response to emergency drought conditions. The committee comprises representatives from state and federal agencies, conservation districts, and local conservation organizations as well as local landowners, irrigators, outfitters, and anglers. The committee’s work has grown to include a long-term water conservation strategy for maintaining instream flows and improving water use efficiency and productivity for ranching. The Drought Committee implements an Emergency Drought Response during low flow summers and works with all water users in the Blackfoot watershed – including ranchers, anglers, floaters, homeowners, and community businesses.

A question and answer discussion will follow the presentation.  The presentation is free and open to the public; light refreshments will be served.
