State Engineer Orders Corrective Control in the Laramie County Control Area

Responding to mounting concerns over increasing development and use of groundwater resources in the Laramie County
Control Area (LCCA), State Engineer Pat Tyrrell issued an order on April 1, 2015 that will guide groundwater development
in that area for at least the next five years. 

The mission of the Wyoming State Engineer's Office and Board of Control is to provide for the general supervision and protection of both inter- and intra-state waters of Wyoming. This includes the appropriation, distribution and application to beneficial use of water as provided under the prior appropriation doctrine, and to maintain the flexibility within that framework to meet the changing needs of the citizens of Wyoming. The State Engineer's Office collects, analyzes, maintains and provides water related information for ensuring the appropriate management and regulation of Wyoming's water resources.
