Water Resources

 

Montana has significant surface and groundwater resources. While surface water resources may be quantified (see below), groundwater resources are less evident. Groundwater availability is limited by aquifer physical characteristics, recharge from precipitation, and interactions with surface water. The most common source of groundwater are shallow sand and gravel aquifers (see below) along floodplains of major streams and rivers.
