Irrigation System Surveys

The Wyoming Water Development Commission maintains a database of irrigation districts and companies in the State of Wyoming. A survey is conducted every two years, alternating with the public water system survey, and the results are used to update the database. This survey provides important information for the agency's funding criteria. It aids in prioritizing the funds available for feasiblity studies and project construction. In addition, this information allows irrigation districts and companies to compare operational issues, financial data, and general information with others around the state.
