About Water for Flathead’s Future
from their website’s About page (3):
“Water for Flathead’s Future is a grass roots organization that advocates sustainable use of our surface and underground water resources to assure that the needs of the people, fish and wildlife of the Flathead Valley of Montana can be met now and for generations to come. Any person or company that endangers the quality and availability of this most valuable resource by shipping large quantities of it away from the local area poses a threat to our livelihoods, our happiness, and our economy. We work to prevent this from happening by advocating land use reform and denying permits for any such activities.
Water for Flathead’s Future is made up of farmers, homeowners, sportsmen and business owners from around Flathead Valley who believe in careful conservation of water resources that belong to all of us. We represent thousands of Valley residents from all walks of life.”
