“Water is critical to Wyoming’s future and because of its importance I want as many people to be involved in this strategy as possible. By taking advantage of technology, people can join this meeting from their homes or from the local public library. I urge everyone who can, to join on June 4th,” Governor Mead said.

“The Water Strategy will be flexible and will include efforts that are defined and have outcomes that can be measured.
