Alternative to Sourdough Dam (Chronicle)

Bozeman City Commissioners heard at least two alternatives to building a dam and reservoir on Sourdough Creek on Monday night.

The city is considering constructing a reservoir about half the size of the one on Hyalite Creek to add to the city’s water supply.

But explained by Cal Erb, water rights attorney, then rises legal problems with water rights.

“Anything you do will be based on whether you are harming anyone else with a water right and how you’re able to mitigate that”

The city officials predict the city would be able to nearly double in size to 80,000 people with the additional water supply.

Is this a good thing? What do you think, should we grow our population and at the same time adding more man made structures to our beautiful outdoors? But then again, new jobs could be created witht the project. Let us know what you think.
