Values in RED indicate basins updated since previous statewide plan.
  1. In 1973 Framework Plan, Powder/Tongue Basin is included in Northeast Wyoming Basin. Also, the 1973 Wind/Bighorn Basin included the Little Bighorn subbasin, but the Little Bighorn is in the 2002 Powder/Tongue Basin.
  2. Bear, Platte, and Wind/Bighorn values are overall averages, Bear and Wind/Bighorn Basin Plans did not provide normal, dry, and wet year scenarios for consumptive use estimates. Current total CU for other basins taken from "normal" year averages.
  3. Wind/Bighorn River Basin Plan provided full-supply consumptive irrigation requirement but not supply-limited consumptive use. Table value was estimated by multiplying historical diversions by overall efficiency and does not include Tribal Futures projects.
  4. Average unit CU.
  5. Normal CU was not calculated in this Agricultural Use Memo, WYRAG Memo, 2009. Total CU, Active Irrigated Lands, and Unit CU numbers are all average values of the wet and dry year numbers.
