Wyoming Governor Matt Mead along with the heads of the Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality and the Wyoming Water Development Commission traveled to Riverton Monday to meet with the public about a long term source of drinking water.
Mead says that his recent meeting with residents of Pavillion reinforced the need to supply save and reliable water to the residents of Fremont County.
Mead stated that he remains optimistic that the issue can be resolved in a positive way.
Governor Mead has asked to partner with the EPA to do more sampling from the test wells and perhaps drill more wells. The Wyoming Water Development Commission is developing additional funding scenarios that would reduce the monthly cost of an alternative source of water to a manageable amount. After this information has been developed the Commission will hold public meetings in Pavillion.
