1908 Flood
1908 flood

The Missoulian’s Kim Briggeman wrote a pair of articles on the 100th anniversary of largest flood the Clark Fork River had seen since perhaps the Ice Ages. It was that flood that ultimately caused the contamination of the Milltown aquifer and Superfund cleanup today. Read one article on whether similar floods are still possible and another looking back on the historic event. (Photo courtesy of the Bonner School’s Jack L. Demmons Collection.)
