DEQ finalizes West Glacier water, wastewater and stormwater approval

HELENA – The Montana Department of Environmental Quality completed the final Environmental Assessment for the proposed West Glacier RV Park’s associated water, wastewater and stormwater approvals and has issued a final approval. The proposed facility is located west of the town of West Glacier and south of the Middle Fork of the Flathead River.  It is less than one mile from the west entrance to Glacier National Park.


Glacier Park, Inc. applied for subdivision approval specific to the public water supply system, public wastewater and collection disposal, stormwater drainage collection and retention system and solid waste management for an RV park with cabins. The proposed infrastructure submitted to the Department for review and approval has previously received Preliminary Plat approval from the Flathead County Board of Commissioners. DEQ approved the RV and Cabin Village proposal to install their own Public Water Supply system, public wastewater collection and disposal system and an on-site stormwater runoff collection system. Solid waste will be transported to the Flathead County landfill.


DEQ prepared a draft Environmental Assessment and accepted public comments earlier this year. The final EA with response to public comments can be viewed at:  Copies of the draft and final EA can be viewed at DEQ’s Kalispell Regional Office, 655 Timberwolf, Suite #3 or at the main DEQ office at 1520 East Sixth Ave., Helena. For more information about the application or the license process please contact the DEQ Subdivision program at 406-444-4224
