The Montana Natural Resource Damage Program’s newly finished restoration design plan for the Clark Fork and Blackfoot Rivers near the Milltown Dam site is now available online. The state’s effort dovetails with the dam and sediment removal and seeks to return the rivers to a naturally functioning condition, to protect water quality and wildlife habitat and to offer safe recreational opportunities.
