Protecting Laramie
Area Drinking Water

Why Our Mission is Important

About 50% of the water supplied to Laramie residents comes from the Casper Aquifer. In addition, several hundred residents near the city depend on the Casper Aquifer for 100% of their drinking water. Locally, the Casper Aquifer is recharged in the area extending approximately from Boulder Drive to the Laramie Range east of the city.
