There seems to have been lots of talk these days in Wyoming about the EPA cracking down on small towns and the way they treat solid and water waste. Many area dumps are closing causing added expenses to haul garbage to far out facilities. EPA is also tightening regulations on Waste Water discharge.  Some small towns like Ranchester have been needing to update old equipment which costs can eventually trickle down to citizens.

Thanks for reading… hope your real estate transactions all go smoothly!!
