100.PROJECT:State Stream Gage System
LEVEL:New Application
SPONSOR:State Engineer's Office
PROGRAM:New Development

In 1996, $200,000 was appropriated from Water Development Account #2 for Wyoming stream gage rehabilitation and construction for FY 96-97. The Bureau of Reclamation and the USGS also appropriated monies for work on these Wyoming stream gages. An October 3, 1997 letter from the State Engineer's Office (SEO) states that a systematic, continuing program of maintenance, upkeep and evaluation of statewide stream gage needs is necessary. The federal agencies may have funds available for stream gage work statewide for the next 3 to 4 years. This project could continue as a special funding for construction and maintenance of stream gages throughout the State of Wyoming for the next few years. The SEO will be required to submit an itemized accounting of expenditures with each transfer request under this authorization, and will be required to submit annual reports and a final report containing all information developed to date and their progress.

The WWDC recommends that the project be incorporated into the New Development Program at Level II with an appropriation of $200,000.
