The Montana Department of Justice has released a 65-point-5 million dollar draft plan on improving fisheries and wildlife in the Upper Clark Fork River Basin.
The plan is called Draft Upper Clark Fork River Basin Aquatic and Terrestrial Resources Restoration Plans.
It involves protecting or enhancing fishery or wildlife sources in the Clark Fork River from from Butte to Milltown.
The plan would also involve improving stream flow.
A public hearing about the draft plan will be held on October 17th at the Deer Lodge Elks Club at 6pm.
A 30 day public comment period is also in effect right now until October 26th.
Public comments will be reviewed before the draft plan is forwarded to the Governor, who will make a final decision about the restoration plans by the end of the year.
