Bringing Water Professionals Together

The Montana Section of the AWRA was founded in 1984 and currently consists of over 100 professionals and students that share the common goal of promoting water resources research, planning, development, and education in Montana. To accomplish these goals, the AWRA hosts an annual meeting each year to provide a common meeting ground for physical, biological, social scientists, engineers, and other persons concerned with water resources.

Hello Fellow Montanans,
