Steve Regele, Judd Stark, Montana Department of Environmental Quality


This 11-page Department of Environmental Quality report discusses biological issues that are expected to occur from coalbed methane development in Montana. These issues include dewatering of local and regional aquifers; decreased surface water availability in some areas; increased surface water flows in areas receiving CBM discharges in other
areas; water quality effects of CBM development discharges on waters and biota receiving the CBM discharges; and creation of significant surface disturbances from CBM facility and service road construction.
