It is essential that irrigation water requirements and consumptive uses of water be known, when planning for water resource development at any level of government. The Blaney-Criddle Method of estimating consumptive use was chosen to provide guidelines of water use throughout Wyoming because it is widely accepted, is easy to use, and utilizes readily available climatic data. A digital computer program for solution of the method was prepared and data for fifty-six climatological stations in Wyoming are presented. (Author)
