Montana Water Specialists

About us . . .


MONTANA WATER SPECIALISTS is a Montana family-owned-and-operated business based in Northwest Montana.  We specialize in providing  experienced and Montana-certified Water System Operators for small to medium-sized water supplies and water distribution systems. Multiple certified operators are available for the operation of systems in a manner compliant with Federal clean drinking water regulations, as well as State of Montana Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) regulations. We offer a full spectrum of services to small system such as Homeowners Association Water Systems, rural public facilities, such as restaurants, campgrounds and commercial facilities.

Montana Water Specialist has its historic beginnings in the early 1970’s with my first training and experience in “Water Systems Operation and Compliance”.  I achieved formal certifications for all four available certification classes (A,B,C and D) through the State Training and Certification Program. I then worked for a City-County-State Environmental Health Department, where I specialized in water quality issues and the training of Water System Operators in the proper procedures and practices for delivering safe dependable water to consumers. Over the years I have continued to work as a full time professional in the fields of water quality issues, Water Rights and their beneficial uses for human consumption and other multiple use applications.

We offer you Certified Water Operators with formal Montana Department of Environmental Quality Certifications for the professional operation of water supply and distribution systems. And we offer services to individual homeowners with their own wells.  For a complete list of the services we offer, go to the “Our Services” page.  Then contact us directly by email at or call us at 406-249-4997 for further information and a courtesy proposal to show how we can provide you with the required services you need – – and provide them at the lowest cost possible.

Thanks for your time and attention.  We look forward to hearing from you at your earliest convenience.
