City County Intergovernmental Steering Committee for Updates to the Casper Aquifer Protection Plan

The City of Laramie obtains municipal water from two primary sources: the Laramie River and the Casper Aquifer. The Casper Aquifer supplies approximately 60% of the City's drinking water and 100% to those homeowners that fall within the Casper Aquifer recharge area. The community has noted the importance of the Casper Aquifer and has relied on the Casper Aquifer Protection Plan and accompanying ordinance to protect our water supply since 2002. Albany County and the City of Laramie have completed and adopted an updated Casper Aquifer Protection Plan with review, development, and consultation from Fort Collins based consulting firm, Stantec. The approved Casper Aquifer Protection Plan can be viewed below.
