Values in RED indicate basins updated since previous statewide plan.
  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.
  3. 50-Year Projections. Only Domestic Mid Scenario was estimated, so the high and low numbers of the Municipal and Domestic section only reflect municipal projected use. Recreational projections were not estimated in this plan.
  4. 20-Year Projection. The Recreational Analysis for the 2014 Snake-Salt Update was completed differently than for the 2003 Update. As a result no projections are available for this scenario.
