NEWS & ANNOUNCEMENTS:



Bozeman Creek Stream Health Report Card 2012-2014
With support from a Small Urban Waters Grant from the Environmental Protection Agency, the GLWQD established an urban stream monitoring network in Bozeman.  This network consists of 12 monitoring stations on Bozeman Creek, Catron Creek, Mandeville Creek and Matthew Bird Creek.  In 2012 and 2013, GLWQD staff, with assistance from volunteers with the Gallatin Stream Team, conducted monitoring activities and collected water quality data that will be used to establish baseline information and build a database for understanding long-term trends in water quality.  
A stream health report card for Bozeman Creek was recently published highlighting some of the results from this field work.  Hard copies are available at the GLWQD office and can be downloaded here.  Bozeman Stream Health Report Card 2012-2014

OUR MISSION...
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.
