In 2013, the City of Bozeman adopted the Integrated Water Resources Plan to outline a 50-year plan to supply water to the community. There is a finite supply of water. Bozeman is located in a closed basin with respect to water rights, and existing water supplies are susceptible to the impacts of drought and climate change. This program will highlight the challenges and strategies of providing a reliable water supply to Bozeman.
