Cheyenne Has Plenty of Water

Laramie, Wy – Cheyenne should have plenty of water this summer. For the second year in a row the reservoirs that supply the city with water are full. That's after five years of drought and lower water levels. The director of the Board of Utilities, Tim Wilson, says the two reasons the reservoirs are full are, more moisture and a water conservation program.
In Cheyenne it is now mandatory that people only water their lawns three days a week and never between ten a-m and six p-m. Tim Wilson says this has resulted in less water consumption. He says the city will keep those restrictions in place this year.
