Wyoming Water Law: A Summary


In Wyoming a valid right to the use of water may be acquired only by following the procedures established by state law for both surface and ground water.

Water users should be sure of the status of their water rights. Check the records in the county clerk's office, or through the state engineer's office. The records indicate the appropriation amount, priority of the right and how and where the water is to be used. If there are any questions, check with the state engineer's office and request complete information on the status of the water right in question.
