BOZEMAN - Monday night, Bozeman city commissioners will look at future plans for the city's water supply.
They will vote on whether to adopt the Integrated Water Resource Plan, which looks at the city's water needs over the next 50 years.
The plan looks at the most efficient and effective way to supply drinking water to the community.
Right now, the City's drinking water comes from Hyalite Reservoir, Lyman Creek, and the Sourdough drainage.
The plan recommends drawing more from those sources and adding additional sources as needed.
Bozeman City Manager Chris Kukulski says we need to have a plan to address Bozeman's growing community.
"In our current water, at current utilization, we would run out of supply once the population hit somewhere around 55,000," Kukulski said.
The commission will also vote on adopting a new curbside recycling system.
