Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 21, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Montana cloud-seeding plan gets green light Mont. Fhe Montana Board of Matural Resources voted 4-to- Tuesday to allow a' controversial cloud-seeding in northwestern Mon- ana. Following the a spokesman for the Bonneville rawer administration said that the federal power-1 generating agency hopes to jeglij''Nthe weather- TiodiJEicatioh project by Dec. American weather jased firm thai has a contract with was granted the right to seed clouds over a portion of the south fork of the Flatbead River drainage above Hungry Horse dam. The board rejected a recommendation by the state department of natural resources that the permit for Ihe project be denied.

The.one-year project is aim- ed' at providing an average snowpack above Hungry Horse dam. SPECIAL STUDY R. H. BPA dis- trict manager at said BPA would probably con- duct a special survey of snow- pack conditions in the target area prior to the start of the cloud seeding to see how much moisture is needed. He said technology available will enable a max- imum increase of snowpack by up to 10 per cent. Wicks said the benefits of the project would amount to only a stop-gap measure. He said the cloud-seeding could produce only 5 per cent of the power needed to end the anticipated energy shortage in the Pacific northwest. Proponents said that the cloud-seeding could benefit other areas of Montana by increasing the availability of water for irrigation. Opponents said energy conservation was more impor- tant than using technology to bail out people who have refused to cut down on energy consumption.
