The Wyoming Water Development Commission is conducting an internal study of the proposal, Taliaferro said Friday.
Sweetwater County rancher William Taliaferro has suggested taking state water out of the Green River and moving it through a gravity pipeline for agricultural or industrial use.
Nephi Cole, a Mead policy adviser, has held listening sessions around the state, including Torrington, Lovell and Casper, as a prelude to drafting the water strategy.
"He has been talking to various people regarding water storage, uses, all the various aspects involving water as a precious commodity in Wyoming," Mary Kay Hill, another of the governor's policy advisers, said Friday. "One of the consistent comments that he's hearing around the state is the request for more storage.
Although storage is expensive, the state needs to do what it can given the growing population in the West and the corresponding demands for water, he added.
Mead said Wyoming must look at the cost and beneficial use of the water over the long term.

Wyomingites want dams and reservoirs
Living in an area where irrigation, vis a vis, storage was started many years ago I recognize the importance of being able to call upon water when it is needed. Passionate views, pointed criticism and critical thinking are welcome. Name calling, crude language and personal abuse are not welcome. Moderators will monitor comments with an eye toward maintaining a high level of civility in this forum. Our comment policy explains the rules of the road for registered commenters.
Currently the commission's Dam and Reservoir Division is promoting, among other things, construction of new or enlargement of existing dams and reservoirs, according to the commission's Web page.
Taliaferro said a Wyoming member of the Colorado River Advisory Board told him that during a recent meeting in Las Vegas, other members were talking seriously about taking water out of the Green River for Lake Mead and Lake Powell.
A gravity pipeline from the Green River would save some industries the cost of pumping water, he said. Taliaferro said he doesn't need the water himself because he has his own supply.
Nonsense. Federal lands (USDA FS, BLM, NPS, etc.) are held as national trusts, often for multiple use (FS/BLM), and sometimes to protect priceless resources, including wildlife, wild spaces, and scenic treasures (NPS). States do not have the resources to manage such lands, and private ownership robs our country of many resources we hold dear. Government ownership of land is the only guarantee of access for most of us, and the only guarantee of any degree of preservation and conservation in most cases leaving any hope of a legacy for ensuing generations. It's one of the few things our country has done right.

YOU SHOUTED YOUR COMMENT IN ALL CAPS. This is hard to read and annoys readers.
He mentioned challenges to Wyoming's water rights under the Colorado River Compact as a result of drought, particularly on the upper Green River.
was some major fire in Rocky Mountain NP that only you know about. You're thinking of USDA FS and while I agree their fire policies have left much to be desired there are changes coming. I hunt and fish and hike and camp on FS land, and the rest of your post pretty much supports my arguments it sounds like you enjoy spending time on BLM and other federal lands, even if there are a few hassles now and then. If that becomes private land you can kiss your unfettered access (to hunt, fish, hike, ride, camp, shoot, photograph, ski, snowshoe, etc.) goodbye. Our pubic lands are treasures for everyone to enjoy and one of the real bonuses of living in a western state we don't need to join private hunting or fishing clubs, or try to imagine how to take a 10 mile hike in a 2 mile state park, or have to fly across the country to find open space to leave people and noise and stress behind, or drive 12 hours to a national park to find wilderness, or load up horses or the ATVs and trailer 10 hours to some improved campground and join the tourist traffic jams. Get out there and enjoy our public lands here in WY and be thankful they're out there this luxury does not exist in many countries across the globe, nor even in most eastern states.
The state is paying the federal government $640,000 per year to store the water.
CHEYENNE Early results from Gov. Matt Mead's state water strategy initiative make at least one issue clear: Residents want more storage capacity, be it from dams or reservoirs.
coal fired power plants over there and use the water for cooling the plants, then sell the electricity to Denver or the West coast. Also creates WYO jobs and tax base. If we don't put it to use, the Feds will claim it. You say they can't have you been watching our Constitution being shredded daily?
There is no shortage of ideas for water projects.
"We're receiving a lot of feedback that storage is important."

Money for construction projects comes out of the commission's water development account, which currently has a balance of $311 million.
Wilderness:We have seen how well the NPS has managed forests. so well that since no fire is allowed to burn we get these mega forest fires that light the night skies from 30 miles away. I saw the night glow orange when Colorado had those fires. The Feds implement Obama anti energy policies that hamper or destroy the private sector from making a profit on these lands. Look at what they are doing with Anwar up in Alaska. They also have these foolish rules where the public cannot cross a checker board area at the section corners as a payoff to the ranchers. The feds also sell a patch of land to the rancher so that when we drive down a BLM road it dead ends into a 20 foot wide 'private' land, then continues on the other side to a BLM tract basically making the public lands inaccessible to the public. Yeah that's looking out for the public.

The Water Development Commission, he said, already has requests for studies for projects on the Black's Fork and the Ham's Fork.
He cited as a potential project source Wyoming's 20,000 acre feet of state water stored in the Fontenelle Reservoir on the Green River, which has never been used.
During his news conference on Dec. 20, Mead said he wants to look at small, medium and large water projects.
