Stream Permitting Reminders

Just a quick reminder to our readers that if they have to do any work that affects the bed or banks of a stream in Lewis and Clark County, a permit from the Conservation District--among others--is probably necessary!  This includes the run of the Missouri River Reservoirs, Canyon Ferry, Hauser and Holter reservoirs.

Great Ad from Montana DEQ

A supervisor at the Conservation District recently ran across the following ad on TV, placed by Montana DEQ.  It stresses the importance of riparian/streamside vegetation, especially native vegetation with cottonwoods and willows etc. If you are a new landowner in Lewis and Clark County, or even an established one, please take heed.  Leave the vegetation alone.  You are also considered to be in violation of the Montana Streambed and Land Preservation Act of 1975 if you remove the vegetation without a 310 permit from the Conservation District. https://youtu.be/g5CEAwSrW2M
