Informed Decision-Making: Flathead Water Solutions Handbook

The Flathead Water Solutions: Handbook for Decision-makers, highlighted in this post and also in the “Important Documents” section of this blog (left hand side of blog), is a tool for informed decision-making on the CSKT Compact that can be used going forward to create a REAL solution to the federal reserved water rights of the CSKT. We believe that the People’s Compact offers a “middle ground” solution that is a win-win for all.
