Buffalo Bill Reservoir To Store More Water

Cody, WY – Plenty of water will be stored in Buffalo Bill Reservoir for Big Horn Basin water users, even in the worst of drought years. That's according to a proposed winter release agreement. The proposal is set to replace an agreement signed in 1994 by a number of users. U-S Bureau of Reclamation Area Manager John Lawson assued those at a meeting in Cody the proposed plan, still in draft form, would ensure enough water would be retained for all uses, even in the driest years.
