(Lander, WY) – The City of Lander is currently requesting that residents conserve water while a part at the water treatment plant is being replaced.
The City shared the following:
- On an average summer day, the community uses about 4.5 million gallons of water.
- The plant can produce up to 4 million gallons of water in the best case scenario under the current situation.
- There are no water safety concerns.
- If we all do our part, we can reduce the stress on the water treatment plant and reduce the need for water restrictions.
“At this current time, we are asking the public to please do their part in water conservation. For comparison, during the winter months, the community uses about 1 million gallons of water a day. We will continue to monitor the situation and will keep you posted on the repair. Thank you for your patience.”
The City also provided the following water conservation tips:
- Please reduce the amount of water you are using to water your lawn.
- Shorten your watering times or consider watering one less day per week.

- Turn off the faucet when brushing your teeth.
- Run the dishwasher only when full.
