The Ground-Water Steering Committee is currently accepting nominations for Ground-Water Investigation Program (GWIP) projects to be initiated during 2019.  GWIP projects are nominated to and prioritized by the Ground-Water Steering Committee, and conducted by the Montana Bureau of Mines and Geology.

The Program investigates site-specific water-resource issues throughout Montana.  Proposed projects have included:

  • Potential stream depletion from groundwater development and changes in irrigation practices,
  • Cumulative effects of existing and proposed water development on stream flow,
  • Impacts to groundwater and surface water from changes in irrigation practices or land use,
  • Possible impacts of energy development on groundwater resources,
  • Implementation of aquifer storage and recovery (ASR) in Montana, and
  • Evaluation of mitigation/offset plans in closed basins.

Projects may be nominated by any individual or group. If you are interested in submitting a nomination please see the attachment:
