Develop essential information concerning the current status and future availability of water resources in Wyoming. Wyoming River Basins

The Wyoming River Basin Plans, funded by the Wyoming Legislature beginning in 1997, quantify existing water uses and project future needs of this important resource. With the State divided into seven major drainage basins (Bear, Green, Platte, Northeast, Powder/Tongue, Snake/Salt, and Wind/Bighorn), individual plans are generated to assess current water use in different sectors and to identify and prioritize water development opportunities. These plans are designed to assist Wyoming municipalities, irrigation districts, and other public entities' efforts to plan for the future.



It is important to be dynamic and seek new projects beneficial to the State.
