The Montana Water Trust, Bitter Root Water Forum, Geum Environmental Consulting, Inc., and Will McDowell worked together to complete the Bitterroot River Subbasin Plan for Fish and Wildlife Conservation. Many local partners also participated in developing and reviewing the Subbasin Plan. The Bitterroot River Subbasin Plan consists of three parts:
- Subbasin Assessment
- Subbasin Inventory
- Subbasin Management Plan.
The Plan has been accepted by the Northwest Power and Conservation Council and the Bonneville Power Administration and adopted into the Council’s Fish and Wildlife Program. Geum is currently working with a large group of organizations to help determine the next steps for conservation planning in the Bitterroot subbasin.
