2012 Snake/Salt River Basin Plan Update
Technical Memoranda
Volume 2

This document is intended as an introduction to the volume of technical memoranda produced as part of the 2012 Snake/Salt River Basin Plan Update (2012 Update). A summarized listing of all available technical memoranda is provided in the table below, including those related to the original 2003 Snake/Salt River Basin Plan. The original Snake/Salt River Basin Plan (previous Basin Plan) was completed in 2003.

The 2012 Update was conducted by a team of professionals with the Wyoming Water Development Office, the Wyoming State Engineer's Office, and the University of Wyoming, Water Resources Data System (WRDS). The update is not intended to totally replace the previous Basin Plan or the supporting Technical Memoranda, but will provide updated information and make recommendations for collection of additional information and data to appropriately keep the plan current.

The PDFs require Adobe Acrobat® Reader. If you do not already have this program on your computer, please visit Adobe's Website to download a free copy.
