There are three different projects in Laredo going on April 1st and 2nd that will cause temporary interruption of water services.

Cheyenne, WY (KGWN) - From the Cheyenne Board of Public Utilities:

The City of Cheyenne Board of Public Utilities (BOPU) reports that Cheyenne continues to have safe drinking water. The BOPU published the results from water quality monitoring conducted during 2013 in the 2013 Consumer Confidence Report.

According to the report, Cheyenne’s drinking water is safe and water quality meets or exceeds federal and local drinking water standards. Or, in other words, Cheyenne’s drinking water is better than the drinking water standards established by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

According to the report, Cheyenne’s drinking water is safe and water quality meets or exceeds federal and local drinking water standards. Or, in other words, Cheyenne’s drinking water is better than the drinking water standards established by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

What makes Cheyenne’s drinking water safe? To begin, Cheyenne has excellent water sources. Cheyenne’s water comes from mountain streams in the Medicine Bow and Laramie Mountain Ranges and from wells in the High Plains Aquifer. These water sources are protected by multiple agencies, including the EPA, U.S. Forest Service, Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality, Wyoming State Parks, Laramie County Conservation District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the BOPU.

While Cheyenne enjoys excellent water sources, ultimately, drinking water is safe because BOPU employees protect it and make it safe. Water department crews monitor and protect water quality at water sources, during water treatment, while it is in mains and at homes and businesses. There is never a time when crews are not watching over Cheyenne’s drinking water. At least two water treatment plant operators monitor Cheyenne’s water system and the treatment processes that make the water safe to drink 24 hours a day, every day.

The BOPU will insert a copy of the 2013 Consumer Confidence Report with bills issued after April 10, 2014. Customers can also get a copy of the report by visiting the BOPU at 2416 Snyder Avenue or online at www.cheyennecity.org/ccr.

The report, also known as a Water Quality Annual Report, is a federally mandated report with required information about where Cheyenne’s water comes from and how the treated water compares to the federal rules regarding drinking water quality.
