I have started another thread as I did not wish to continue the hijacking of another thread.

I thought that people looking for information on purchasing land in WY should have the facts.

I spoke directly with the The Wyoming State Engineers office today. There is no restriction of size of property that can get a domestic well permit. As I stated before the only restrictions would be setbacks etc and any County or Town regulations.

There are many houses in the city of Sheridan here that have wells. In fact a couple of them we looked at while we were house shopping had wells.

I have also now talked with a couple of engineering companies, a few realtors and some well companies. I checked with these businesses in several areas of the state.

Several have heard the rumor that you need a 40 acre parcel to get a well permit. They said it is a rumor. Both the well companies and engineers have never had a domestic well permit declined because of size of the lot or property.

I got one on two acres for domestic water. I also drilled one by myself in the town of Mills by casper. I drilled about 55 feet and used it for only watering the garden, lawn. I got the permit from cheyenne and had the o.k. in about two weeks to drill.
