Draft Montana Drought Management Plan – Released for Public Comment

Comments are due August 4th.

The Governor’s Drought and Water Supply Advisory Committee (Drought Committee), a multi-agency group coordinated by the Montana Department of Natural Resources and Conservation (DNRC), is seeking public comments on the draft Montana Drought Management Plan (Plan).

Following the devastating drought in 2017 and the extreme weather events of recent years, the State recognized the need to review, expand, and improve its Drought Management Plan for drought monitoring, response, and adaptation. The Drought Committee spent two years understanding, refining, and documenting Montana’s drought assessment process and operational and administrative response framework. It also compiled and synthesized management recommendations that emerged from the ideas, concerns, and solutions brought forward by hundreds of Montanans and local, state, tribal, and federal partners.
