March precipitation across the Upper Missouri Basin was near to below average. The Montana Stream Access Law says that anglers, floaters and other recreationists in Montana have full use of most natural waterways between the high-water marks for fishing and floating, along with swimming and other river or stream-related activities.

Inthe Montana Supreme Court held that the streambed of any river or stream that has the capability to be used for. Park staff are monitoring changes in environmental factors to alert managers to threats to the resources, it is hoped, in time to prevent long-term damage.

Missouri River Recovery Program Some of the development activities along the Missouri River, such as dams and levees, have come at the expense of the river's native fish and wildlife. Reclamation's SECURE Water Act Report identifies climate challenges the Missouri River Basin could likely face: • Temperatures in the Missouri River Basin are projected to increase by roughly 5°F - 6°F during the 21st century.

• • wintertime runoff with decreased runoff during the summer. Future Impacts for Water and. WATER-USE CLASSIFICATIONS--MISSOURI RIVER DRAINAGE EXCEPT YELLOWSTONE, BELLE FOURCHE, AND LITTLE MISSOURI RIVER DRAINAGES (1) The water-use classifications adopted for the Missouri River are as follows: (a) Missouri River drainage to and including the Sun River drainage except tributaries listed in (1)(a)(i) through (xiii) B-1 (i).

Major Water Users. Any surface or groundwater user with a water source and the equipment necessary to withdraw or divertgallons or more per day (70 gallons per minute) from any stream, river, lake, well, spring or other water source is considered a major water user in Missouri.

The Water Resources Mission Area creates a wide variety of spatial products from GIS datasets, online mappers and decision-support tools, data visualizations, and traditional static maps.

SPARROW model results of mean daily streamflow and average annual total nitrogen, total phosphorus and suspended sediment load in Southeast US streams. The Missouri River is the drinking water source for nearly half of Missourians. Although it’s considered a high quality source of water, the fact that the river drains 1/6 of the continental U.S., including both urban, agricultural and mining/oil production areas means there is a lot of potential for pollutants entering the system.

The Missouri River Reservoir System has the capacity to store approximately 73 million acre-feet of water (one acre-foot of water is equivalent togallons of water). The majority of this water is stored in the upper three reservoirs in Montana, North Dakota, and South Dakota.

Notice - The USGS Water Resources Mission Area's priority is to maintain the safety and well-being of our communities, including providing critical situational awareness in times of flooding in all 50 U.S.
