Casper Aquifer

The Casper Aquifer provides over half of Laramie’s drinking water, along with 100% of many county residents’ water.

The moratorium on development atop the Casper Aquifer has been extended an additional 90 days after the Albany County Commission voted unanimously to do so in a special meeting Thursday morning.

The temporary moratorium prohibits development atop the Casper Aquifer Protection Overlay Zone, a 79-acre zone east of Laramie where the aquifer is considered vulnerable.
