2001 Green River Basin Water Plan
Final Report


As authorized by the Wyoming Water Development Commission in its contract scope of work, this planning document presents current and proposed (estimated) future uses of water in Wyoming's Green River Basin. Uses to be inventoried include agricultural, municipal, industrial, environmental, and recreation. Both surface and ground water uses, as well as overall water quality are described. Given current uses, the availability of surface and ground water to meet future requirements is estimated. To lay the groundwork for future water development, a review of the current institutional and legal framework facing such projects is presented. Finally, thoughts are given to guide implementation of the water planning process.

The structure of this final report is to present findings in enough detail to explain the overall plan without deluging the reader in technical minutiae. Technical memoranda have been prepared which delve into the many individual topics in detail, and it is to these documents the reader should turn for answers to questions about details, methods, and for selected references. No separate list of citations is provided herein other than for the Technical Memoranda (which, individually, contain complete bibliographies).
