As we all know, the continued poor hydrology and low storage volumes in the Colorado River Basin’s main reservoirs has brought additional attention and pressures up and down the Colorado River System in 2022.

Because of these conditions, the State of Wyoming has been utilizing its Governor appointed “Colorado River Working Group” (Working Group) to facilitate communication with Wyoming’s water users. With all water use sectors represented within the Working Group, it is a key focus group that has brought the concerns from each sector into one common discussion.

The Working Group has conducted meetings and outreach across the Green and Little Snake River Basins in Wyoming. The Working Group not only accurately informs the state’s water users of the current issues, but acts as a conduit to understand the concerns, needs and ideas of the state’s users moving forward.
