Thanks to a "small group of thoughtful, committed citizens.." who maybe didn't change the world but did help to keep Montana water Montana's water.  You already met one. Terry Backs, a Lake County resident, within the Confederated Salish & Kooteni Tribe(CSKT) reservation boundaries who with the help of a handful of like minded concerned citizens woke up the 11 Western Montana counties, who would have also been affected by the CSKT Water Rights Compact.  She and one of her partners in a crime of the century AVOIDANCE, Dr. Kate Vandemoer, will  be our guests for this special Sunday nite show. Special nite and time cause this is a special issue that affects all of us. Dr. Kate holds a PhD in hydrology and has 26 years experience with Indian water issues. Dr Kate developed extensive materials that helped the public and the MT legislators to see and understand the fatal flaws of this lop sided "contract". Both will provide an update as to where we stand and to what happens from here. Plus maybe a little bit more info to help open the can of worms that this "contract" may have opened. Read some interesting posts and documents on www.westernmtwaterright.wordpress.com

Then stay tuned this Sunday 7-9 PM for the rest of the story. The water rights you save just might be in your own neck of the woods.
