Bozeman Municipal Watershed Project Summer 2021 Activity and Closures The Bozeman Municipal Watershed Project is a cooperative effort, established in 2011, between the Custer Gallatin National Forest and the City of Bozeman to provide fuel reduction work in this area to maintain a high-quality, predictable water supply for Bozeman residents. This project will: • Reduce the risk of severe and extensive wildfire in the lower portions of Hyalite and Bozeman Creeks. • Limit the amount of sediment and ash entering the water treatment facilities in the event of a fire. • Increase public and firefighter safety while reducing risk of wildfire spread which will protect private lands that border the watershed.

Residents and visitors can expect: • Fuel reduction work using prescribed burning, thinning, and timber harvest. • Equipment (including logging trucks, helicopters, and other machinery) and crews working on both City and National Forest lands. • Smoke from prescribed burns may be visible at times. • Temporary closures of roads or trails.

Areas affected include Kirk Hill, Sourdough/Bozeman Creek Trail, Leverich Gulch, and Moser trailheads. For more information about activity and potential closures in these areas, please visit www.bznwatershed.com.
