The report analyzes surface water resources of the Upper Missouri River Main Stream and Yellowstone Basin with a brief analysis of the ground water resources in Montana and Wyoming. Constraints to water resource development are analyzed along with historical resource development, water availability above present uses, cost of delivery in Wyoming, Montana, and North Dakota. A separate report is included on in-stream needs. It projects amounts of water that should be left in streams to maintain present riparian and aquatic habitats. It assumes that there is a need for maintaining fluctuating annual flows rather than traditional minimum level flows. A separate report is included on the wild and scenic river recreational values of Upper Missouri and Yellowstone Basin streams that may be affected by coal development.
