Water development projects.





This bill provides for new water source of supply projects to be included in the Wyoming Water Development Program. While the amount of funding needed for such projects is currently unknown, it is assumed that the cost would be similar to the existing Small Water Project Program. Based on this assumption, the annual cost of such projects is estimated at $250,000 per year. It is assumed that such projects would be funded through appropriations, similar to those that have been historically provided to the Small Water Project Program.



















This bill has administrative impact that appears to increase (or decrease) duties or responsibilities of one or more state agencies and may impact agency spending or staffing requirements. As introduced, the bill does not modify any state agency budget or current personnel authorizations.

The following state agencies will be asked to provide their estimate of the administrative fiscal impact prior to the first committee meeting held to consider the bill:
