Following a newly adopted strategic plan, the Montana Department of Environmental Quality  (DEQ) Water Quality Division is focusing a large portion of its non-point source pollution program funding into the Bitterroot River watershed over the next three years. This year, the Clean Water Action Section 319 Grant Program is distributing nearly $300,000 to the Bitterroot Watershed. That’s nearly 50% of the 319 funds distributed in the last 12 years.
