Climate and Water Data for the State of Wyoming

The Water Resources Data System (WRDS) is a clearinghouse of hydrological and climatological data for the State of Wyoming. WRDS is funded by the Wyoming Water Development Office and housed within the Department of Civil and Architectural Engineering at the University of Wyoming.

WRDS serves as the Wyoming State Climate Office (SCO) and, as such, we provide a variety of services ranging from the development of enhanced drought-monitoring products to the online dissemination of water resources publications. WRDS/SCO also supports a variety of stakeholder groups by assisting in the development of the State Water Plan and helping to coordinate long-term monitoring efforts throughout the region.

Are you interested in measuring precipitation? Wyoming Volunteers will receive a complimentary 4" diameter rain gauge and a login account to enter their observations.
