CASPER, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming’s snowpack is down to 22 percent of average compared to 220 percent at this time last year.

In its final snowpack report this week, the National Resources Conservation Service office in Casper says that all 19 of Wyoming’s basins are below average. Northwestern Wyoming is in the best shape, with measurements in the 60 and 70 percent range. The snow has completed melted away already in eight basins, including Cheyenne and Sweetwater.

Reservoir levels in the state are still good because of leftover water from last year’s snowfall.

However, water users who pull water directly from rivers instead of the reservoirs could face problems because they will be more dependent on rain.
