This is the official home page of the Laramie-Albany County Environmental Advisory Committee's (EAC) aquifer protection initiative. The committee, appointed jointly by the Laramie City Council and the Albany County Board of County Commissioners, was given the task of formulating a plan to protect Albany County's groundwater from contamination. Minutes of the EAC meetings can be found below.

The Casper aquifer is an important water-bearing geological formation underlying the entire Laramie Valley and supplies most of the drinking water for Laramie and Albany County residents. Part of the committee's charge was to identify potential sources of contamination that could threaten the Casper aquifer and develop strategies to minimize those threats.
