The PWA allocated $778,000 toward the construction of two reservoirs in Meagher County: the Bair Reservoir on the North Fork of the Musselshell River and the Martinsdale Reservoir on the river’s South Fork. 45% of the money for the project was a PWA grant.
The reservoirs were built to store 23,000 acre-feet of water toward the irrigation of at least 20,000 acres.
