The Wyoming Water Research Center (WWRC) at the University of Wyoming has developed, in cooperation with the Wyoming State Engineer's Office, a statewide Water Resources Data System (WRDS) which includes streamflow, climate, snow course data, water quality and well level data. A microcomputer system (CompuPro 816/D-87-H40) has recently been purchased to interact with the large mainframe CYBER 170/760 University computer system. A number of software packages were also purchased with the microcomputer system to allow for much more specialized analysis and better graphics and data processing capabilities. A program is being established to network this system to State agencies where the State agency would be able to obtain printouts and analysis from the database directly.
