The general objectives of the study are to assess the effects of a reservoir project construction and operation on the water quality in streams and reservoirs in Garfield and Petroleum Counties in east-central Montana; to ascertain what benefits are achieved or lost from changes in water quality; to assess the suitability of the water for its proposed uses; and to examine the need for streamflow regulation for the purpose of water quality control. The necessity of streamflow regulation was studied not only in light of present conditions but also for anticipated future conditions in the study area to the year 2065. (Author)
