The completed draft report of recommendations will then be forwarded to the Montana Department of Natural Resources and Conservation (DNRC) in mid-June.  Before the report is submitted, a series of meetings will be conducted around the basin to allow public comment on the recommendations.  Comments will be considered by the Upper Missouri River Basin Advisory Council as the report is finalized.
