  1. In the Bear River Basin study, a Mid Scenario was not completed for agriculture. In this table, the Mid Scenario is estimated based on the current uses.
  2. Wind/Bighorn River Basin industrial use and projections are based on water rights rather than actual consumption. This tends to overstate oil and gas industry use as well as other uses.
