Water Supply Across the State

By  | 

It wasn't too long ago when we were talking about a drought across much of Wyoming, but that's not the case now.

In fact, water supply levels are above average for this time of the year.

Temperatures are warming too fast in some cases, creating snowmelt and runoff from the mountain's tops.

Flooding in Worland and Hudson are just some of the spots experiencing high water this month.

And as for the Casper area, Lee Hackleman a Water Supply Specialist for the U.S. Department of Agriculture says, "The bureau there going to have to move a lot of water down through Nebraska there's not enough room in their reservoirs for what water is going to come off the mountains. So were going to be pumped full and then some by spring."

Hackleman added without a doubt, Pathfinder will overflow once again this summer.
