WRPThe Lower Gallatin Watershed Restoration Plan

 In 2014, the Greater Gallatin Watershed Council worked with residents of the Gallatin Valley to create the Lower Gallatin Watershed Restoration Plan. This document identifies the community’s priorities for watershed health and identifies 33 potential projects to improve area streams and water quality.

Now that the plan is approved by the Montana Department of Environmental Quality, GGWC and other local organizations are eligible to apply for 319 grant funding from the Environmental Protection Agency to implement water quality improvement projects throughout the Lower Gallatin Watershed.
