Projects > Clark Fork River

Confluence assisted the Montana Department of Justice Natural Resource Damage Program in developing its restoration plan for the Clark Fork River. This work included developing alternative bank stabilization concepts, evaluating floodplain stability and revegetation needs, and considering various fish habitat restoration opportunities.

In addition, Confluence staff created and managed large GIS databases for the Milltown Dam and Clark Fork River Operable Units, and participated in the remedial design for the Milltown Dam removal, including remediation stream channel design and sediment transport modeling.

The remediation and restoration of the Clark Fork River will bolster the ecological and economical conditions of Southwest Montana, including a drastically improved fishery, more stable wildlife habitat, and increased land values.
