Wyoming’s mountains are a major tourist draw for travelers to the state, and the state’s mountainous terrain has been a major source of controversy in recent years, with some people concerned that tourists could harm mountain water supplies and even contaminate water supplies.
The federal government has been trying to get the state to reevaluate its water policy and protect the water supply from further contamination, but the governor has so far resisted that effort.
Wyoming has more than 100 active or threatened rivers and streams.
But the state has limited natural resources to water and minerals.
Some of those resources are also at risk of becoming depleted as the climate changes, and as more and more people migrate to the area to work, ranching, and mining.
The state also has some of the lowest levels of groundwater in the country.
Mountain water is crucial to human health, and some parts of Wyoming’s landscape are particularly prone to contamination.
As Wyoming’s water becomes more scarce, the state is turning to other sources of water, including groundwater, for drinking and irrigation.
The state’s groundwater aquifers are the largest in the nation.
About 1.3 billion gallons of water is stored in the state aquifer system, and nearly one-quarter of that is used for drinking, irrigation, and livestock irrigation.
In recent years the state and some surrounding areas have struggled to meet drinking water needs due to the drought and to a lack of new water development.
Wyoming has had a drought since 2013, and in 2018, the drought prompted the state Department of Agriculture to halt water conservation and release more than 1 million acre-feet of water.
The state is also currently battling to manage its groundwater aquifer.
Last month, the Wyoming Legislature passed legislation that would make it harder for the state government to withdraw water from its aquifering system.
The bill would also allow the state department of natural resources and the governor to waive any mandatory restrictions on the release of water from the aquifer system.
The law passed the Wyoming House and Senate on Monday.
It passed both chambers of the legislature unanimously, and it will now head to the governor’s desk for his signature.
