The City of Cheyenne is adding a 2% city assessed service fee, July 1st to all utility bills. It is important to know it is NOT a rate increase for your BOPU water and wastewater services, rather it is a 2% surcharge for the City of Cheyenne’s General Fund. For more information, contact the Mayor’s office for the City of Cheyenne by calling 307-637-6300 or emailing email@example.com
If you want to install new sod or seed in your yard, you need a permit. Find out the requirements and complete your application below.
Soil is the foundation and support system for a healthy lawn and garden. Because of the low nutrient content of the soil in this region, the Board of Public Utilities (BOPU) requires extra composting to amend the soil prior to installing new sod or grass seed. Properly amended soil results in a healthier and more drought-tolerant turf.
Ideal soil for landscaping is composed of 45 percent minerals (clay, silt and sand), 5 percent organic matter and 25 percent each of water and air.
A permit is required to water new sod/seed for more than three days each week. Even with a permit, from May 1 to September 1, no watering is allowed between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. If you need a paper copy, please contact BOPU’s Water Conservation Specialist at 307-637-6415.
We are located at 2416 Snyder Ave. Our lobby hours are 9:00 am to 4:00 pm, Monday-Friday (excluding holidays).
