Wind/Bighorn River Basin


In 2007, the Wyoming Water and Development Commission funded the Wind/Bighorn River Basin groundwater project in order to update the 2003 Wind/Bighorn River Basin Plan . The project was conducted by personnel at the Wyoming State Geological Survey (WSGS) in Laramie, the United State Geological Survey (USGS), Wyoming Water Science Center in Cheyenne, and the Water Resources Data System (WRDS) in Laramie.

This study updates, revises, and expands the groundwater report contained in the 2001 Wind/Bighorn River Basin as the Available Groundwater Determination Technical Memorandum., data May 4, 2001 (Hahn and Jessen, 2001). A downloadable file containing the Hahn and Jessen and this memorandum is available online at the WWDC web site under River Basin Planning.
