CHEYENNE, WY – At the City of Cheyenne Board of Public Utilities (Board), Cheyenne’s customers are our number one concern. Cheyenne’s drinking water is being monitored and continues to remain safe. The Board has and continues to monitor incoming raw water and treated water for any changes in water quality.  The Board’s Water Treatment Plant has advance methods to treat water quality issues associated with ash and sediment from wildfires. 

The Board has multiple drinking water sources, besides Rob Roy Reservoir, including Granite Springs, Crystal Reservoirs and groundwater wells. Currently over 2,606,800,000 gallons of water stored in the Curt Gowdy area reservoirs is ready to be used for Cheyenne’s drinking water. Water resources and water quality remain secure and safe. Granite Springs and Crystal Reservoirs located in Curt Gowdy State Park are not part of the Mullen Fire. 

At press time, the Mullen Fire in the Medicine Bow National Forest has reached over 35,810 acres. Area closures have been updated and for the latest information on the Mullen Fire visit, Facebook @MullenFire or Twitter @FS_MBRTB.
