There is much more history to update, the DNRC hearing, the “Yes for Flathead’s Farms and Water” Egan Slough petition etc.


Until we get this section fully updated,  the posts contain most of the historical information.



The DEQ public hearing was over Aug 2016 and we had over 300 people show up to listen and to be heard. It was standing room only! Look under “News” for the media coverage.



After a nearly one year long wait, DEQ responded to our comments:

See this link: DEQ MAWC Comments


We feel that DEQ failed to adequately address our comments.

DEQ intends to issue the DEQ permit on 1 Nov 2017.


We must take them to task…



Thank you for your support!


Water for Flathead’s Future shared a booth with Citizens for a Better Flathead at the Northwest Montana Fair, at the County Fairgrounds on August 17th – 21st 2016.

This was a terrific opportunity to inform the public about the issues concerning the proposed Creston water bottling plant. Thank you to all who participated.



WFF had a successful showing at Bigfork 4th of July parade…

We would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to everyone who participated in our 4th of July parade activities.

We had a table by the parade with a big cooler of delicious, local water available free to passersby. We made lots of contacts, passed out flyers, brochures, and blue ribbons to many who stopped by for a drink, and we received lots of positive comments on our efforts.

We also had a terrific presence in the parade. The banner Mike and Jan made looked fantastic, and all the marchers had great picket signs. I think we had the largest contingent of any of the parade entries. Other participants reported that everyone our volunteers spoke with, both in Kalispell and Bigfork were supportive of our efforts.

We have also received several generous donations, and are well on our way to earning the full $15,000 we need to get our matching grant. We just need a few more donations (of any amount) to get there, so if you want to contribute to support the legal costs necessary to protect the water of Flathead Valley, it’s not too late.

We can’t begin to THANK YOU enough for your contributions both of time and of money.

With your help, we can win this fight!

Our legal bills are mounting…


Please Donate to our Cause as we continue the good fight for our water!

We are up against corporate interests with deep pockets who have had a several year head start. Our continued effort requires consultant hydrologists, attorneys, and other expenses to help us spread the word, protect our valley, and to prepare for the DNRC and other hearings.

We have entered into a new arrangement with the Egan Slough Community for them to serve as a fiscal sponsor for Water for Flathead’s Future until we are approved as a 501(c)3 from the IRS. This means that your contributions for our work to protect the Flathead Valley’s aquifers can be TAX DEDUCTIBLE to the extent allowed by law and by your individual circumstances.

To do this, please make checks payable to Egan Slough Community and write in the memo section “for WFF” and mail to:

Egan Slough Community (EIN#81-5152128)

P.O. Box 10518

Kalispell MT 59904

Please be as generous as you are able.

If you choose to donate without taking a tax deduction, you  can…


1) Write a check directly directly to WFF and mail it to:



P.O. Box 10518

Kalispell MT 59904


Note: Egan Slough Community and WFF share the same P.O. box.
