Protect, preserve and improve ground water and surface water quality within the Gallatin Local Water Quality District
In 1991, the Montana Legislature passed a new law giving local governments the authority to form local water quality districts. The Gallatin Local Water Quality District was created by Resolution No. 1995-55 of the Gallatin County Commission, and approved by the Montana Board of Environmental Review in 1997. The focus of the Gallatin Local Water Quality District is on water resources education and water quality monitoring for increased awareness of water-related issues and public health.
