The Flathead Basin Commission (FBC) was created in 1983 by the Montana Legislature to protect water quality, natural resources and economic integrity in the Flathead Basin. The FBC is a uniquely structured non- regulatory organization that accomplishes its mandate in a consensus- building mannner, stressing education, partnership with agencies and nonprofit groups, and the voluntary participation of basin residents.
