Next spring, Montana may take the first steps toward stabilizing its system of stream gauges.

On Monday, the Legislative Water Policy Interim Committee unanimously supported an effort to create a working group that would oversee the state’s stream gauges.

“The only reason this committee exists is the recognition by the citizens that water is the most crucial asset that this state has,” said committee chairman Pat Connell, R-Hamilton. “This is a significant step for the state of Montana.”
