The Wyoming Water Development Commission
presents the
1999 Irrigation System Survey Report

During the summer of 1998, the Wyoming Water Development Commission conducted a survey research project to identify Wyoming irrigation districts and canal companies. This survey report is incomplete in many areas, however there is no single source where better information is currently available. WWDC welcomes comments and corrections to this information. Please contact WWDC at 777-7626.

WWDC wishes to thank Ms. Bobbi Carlson for her work on this survey, and the State Engineer's Division Supervisors and staff for their patience in assisting in the acquisition of this information. Bruce Brinkman of WWDC developed the data base and organized the report. Evan Green of WWDC was the project manager. The Water Resources Data System in the College of Civil and Architectural Engineering at the University assisted with the data retrieval.
