Glendive in Dawson County, Montana — The American West (Mountains)
The Yellowstone River
In the 1970s Montana's held a great debate over this mighty river's future. When the dust settled, the state reserved a substantial amount of water to remain in stream so that the Yellowstone might never be depleted and might forever remain free-flowing.
Other uses of the river - municipal, agricultural and industrial - are also provided for. Today, this waterway is a balance with all its users, including nature's creatures. Few American rivers can still make that claim.
Erected by Montana Department of Transportation.
