Water Resources Data System


The Water Resources Data System (WRDS) is a computerized storage, retrieval and analysis system for water resources data that is under development at the Wyoming Water Resources Research Institute. The kinds of data included are surface water, water quality, climatological and snow course. Portions of the system are completed and fully operational. This report describes the existing system so that potential users may learn and make use of it.

The system contains a vast and growing amount of data. It is a fast, effective and easy way to obtain large or small amounts of information while eliminating considerable time tabulating and calculating. Persons interested in requesting data or having questions regarding the system can write the Water Resources Research Institute, Box 3067, University Station, Laramie, Wyoming, 82071. A more expedient approach is to telephone Verne Smith at 307-766-2143.

User requests are normally submitted to the computer the same day that they are received. Results are generally in the mail the following day. Small requests sometimes are filled in the same day as received and large requests may require a week. Charges for services are given in the appendix.
