Wind/Bighorn River Basin Water Plan
2010 Final Report


The Wind-Bighorn Basin Plan Update provides an update to the 2003 Wind-Bighorn Basin Plan. The Basin Plan Update was prepared to be consistent with the information and presentation of the Wyoming Framework Water Plan. The Framework Plan presents a statewide perspective on water resources compiled from the results of a seven-basin planning process performed by the Wyoming Water Development Commission (WWDC).

The scope of the Wind-Bighorn Basin Plan update is to document current and future water uses within the Wind-Bighorn Basin, and adjust estimates of water availability based on recent hydrologic information, including the 2000s drought conditions within the basin.
