Case Summary Citation
2012 MT 169, 365 Mont. 540, 285 P.3d 448
The issue of whether two adjoining bodies of water are connected in such a way that a change in flow in one will affect the flow in the other is a complex question. In Fellows v. Office of Water Commission for the Perry v. Beattie Decree, the Montana Supreme Court decided it is possible for two waterways to be hydrologically interconnected in a way that affects water rights holders on the two waterways.
