 88. PROJECT:Riverton East
LEVEL:New Application
LOCATION:Fremont County
PROGRAM:New Development

The Tribes were awarded water to irrigate the Riverton East Project in Fremont County east of the city of Riverton and east of the Wind River. The project is to irrigate about 3900 to 4000 acres of presently unirrigated range land. The project will review the studies done to date and will determine the feasibility of irrigating the area by means of a sprinkler irrigation from the Wind River and/or Little Wind River. The study will also evaluate the potential of using alternate means to power the pumps, such as natural gas.

The WWDC recommends that the project be incorporated in the New Development Program at Level II with an appropriation of $125,000. status.
