Welcome to Montana DEQ's Nonpoint Source Wiki


This site provides a place to share information and data relating to DEQ's Nonpoint Source Program. Our program is fueled by participation from the community, watershed groups and organizations. Please add your thoughts or start a conversation about nonpoint source pollution in your watershed. Getting started is easy. Click here to request access. Or, check out our tutorial to get started.


The Watershed Protection Section receives funding under Section 319 of the federal Clean Water Act to assist watershed groups and organizations in their efforts to protect and restore surface and ground water from the effects of nonpoint source pollution. A significant portion of this funding is used for on the ground TMDL Implementation projects.  The amount of funding available for projects in Montana varies as designated by Congress and EPA, but in the recent past has been from $900,000 to $1,000,000 per fiscal year. Visit these pages for information on how to apply for funding for your watershed restoration projects:
