No, Water Restrictions For Casper And Surrounds, Yet
Reservoir storage during our wet years means North Platte Drainage communities are not likely to face water conservation measures this summer, that from Central Wyoming Regional Water System Joint Powers Board Chair, Paul Bertoglio.
"Our outlook is, we see no reason to put any water restrictions on, unless of course the state decided that they want to put restrictions on flows out of the North Platte River."
Bertoglio notes, however, they are already running the Casper Water Plant at a level more typical to late June.
In the meantime, the state has control over North Platte flows during the irrigation season and it would be up to the state manager to call for any restrictions.
Nevertheless, he says its purely a matter of speculation, especially if you consider how quickly Wyoming weather can change.
