The majority of the protection area is owned by two entities – Warren Livestock (and subsidiaries) – 41%, and Mountain Cement – 15%.  Bureau of Land Management (BLM), the University of Wyoming, and the State of Wyoming own isolated tracts across the recharge area – total 23%, and the remaining portions, closest to the city, are divided among many small land owners.  This patch work of land owners makes aquifer management and land acquisition complicated.
