Values in RED indicate basins updated since previous statewide plan.

  1. Bear and Wind/Bighorn River Basin Plans did not calculate normal, dry, and wet year scenarios but overall averages.
  2. Platte methodology does not afford calculation of irrigation water requirement; values estimated by applying average CU:IWR ratio from other basins.
  3. Average unit IWR.
  4. Normal CIR was not calculated in this Agricultural Use Memo, WYRAG Memo, 2009. Total IWR/CIR and Active Irrigated Lands are both average values of the wet and dry year numbers.
