NEWS TO KNOW:

 

Judge strikes down exempt well rule

 

You may have heard the recent news of Judge Sherlock's ruling which reinstates the 1987 rules regarding water wells in Montana. 

Be assured that the Montana Building Industry Association (MBIA) is closely monitoring this and has spoken with Tim Davis, Water Resources Bureau Chief at the DNRC, about the Sherlock decision.   MBIA Executive Director Dustin Stewart was told that there is a two week stay on the order and that regional DNRC offices will be accepting "notices of completion" for exempt wells during this time.   Mr. Davis also said that his legal council is currently reviewing the judgment and will have information next week on how the DNRC plans on proceeding once the two week stay is lifted.
