Historical NoteReturn to Top

The Montana Water Resources Board was created in 1947 (see title 89, chapter 1, Revised Code of Montana 1947), and was abolished by the Executive Reorganization Act of 1971, when its functions were transferred to the Department of Natural Resources and Conservation, Water Resources Division (DNRC).

The DNRC provides leadership in managing the state's natural resources. As of 2013, it is responsible for promoting the stewardship of Montana's water, soil, forest, and rangeland resources; for regulating forest practices and oil and gas exploration and production. The department is organized into seven divisions: Director's Office, Conservation and Resource Development, Forestry, Oil and Gas Conservation, Reserved Water Rights Compact Commission, Trust Land Management, and Water Resources.

The Water Resources Division is responsible for many programs associated with the uses, development and protection of Montana's water. It manages and maintains the state-owned dams, reservoirs, and canals. The division also develops and recommends in state, interstate, and international water policy to the director, Governor, and legislature. The division consists of eight regional offices and five bureaus: Water Management Bureau, Water Rights Bureau, Adjudication Bureau, State Water Projects Bureau and the Water Operations Bureau.

The Water Projects Bureau administers the operation and maintenance of state-owned water projects. These include 24 dams, with approximately 250 miles of irrigation canals and one 10 MW hydropower facility. The bureau also assists the Department of Fish, Wildlife and Parks with dam safety issues regarding their 9 dams. Most of the DNRC projects are operated by local water users associations that use the water for irrigation.
