Water Quality Protection District
We all need clean water. We drink it. We fish, swim, boat and enjoy it in our streams and lakes. It irrigates our crops, is used by our businesses, and helps keep our yards and parks green. The Lewis and Clark County Water Quality Protection District has worked to preserve, protect, and improve water quality since 1992.
