III. Agency Philosophy Statement

The Wyoming Water Development Program was founded on the sound philosophy of utilizing a portion of the income the state receives from the development and use of its non-renewable resources, such as coal, oil and gas, and trona, to manage a renewable resource, water. One way in which water resource management is achieved is by evaluating development and rehabilitation strategies, and selecting the best alternative for constructing new or rehabilitating existing infrastructure. In this manner the Wyoming Water Development Program will ensure the delivery of water to Wyoming citizens in an economical and environmentally responsible manner. Sound water planning will preserve Wyoming's water entitlements and will promote the effective and efficient use of the state's water resources.
