One important potential source of contamination is sewage. In the larger community settings of Missoula County, wastewater treatment plants are used to treat the sewage before it is released back into the river. But not all of Missoula County's areas are served by wastewater treatment plants. Many homes in the county have on-site wastewater disposal systems that dispose of sewage into the ground. Gradually that sewage, if not properly treated, can contaminate our drinking water.




Handouts and Resources


Our Health Department has worked very hard to prevent contamination of our underground drinking water sources. You can find out more by visiting the Water Quality website.
