Tribal Water Code: Water Conservation Plan, Rocky Boy / North Central Montana Regional Water System (Sep. 2004). Parties: Chippewa-Cree Tribe and NCM-RWS. The Rocky Boy/North Central Montana Regional Water System Act of 2002 (Pub. L. 107-331) authorized construction of the Rocky Boy/North Central Montana Regional Water System in north-central Montana. To meet the requirements of the Act, the Chippewa Cree Tribe and the North Central Montana Regional Water Authority developed and submitted a water conservation plan to Reclamation. The purpose of this water conservation plan is to ensure that users of water from the core system, non-core system and the on-reservation water distribution systems use the best practicable technology and management techniques to conserve water. Existing distribution systems delivering water to off-reservation users will receive wholesale water from this project. The plan covers 1) statement of purpose, scope, agreements & terms; 2) a description of the project; 3) water resources inventory; 4) water management problems, goals, objectives and opportunities; 5) existing water conservation measures; 6) additional water conservation measures considered; 7) additional water conservation measures; 8) selected measures and project results; 9) environmental review; and 10) implementation schedule for adoption of plan and budget.
