Case Summary Citation
City of Helena v. Community of Rimini, 388 Mont. 1, 397 P.3d 1 (Mont. 2017).
After twenty years of adjudication, the Montana Supreme Court affirmed the City of Helena’s right to 13.75 cfs from Ten Mile Creek, the city’s primary water source. The Court found a statute allowing cities and municipalities to exercise water rights that have gone through extended periods of nonuse did not need a retroactive clause.
