Notice to Platte County Irrigators

Wyoming State law prohibits the flow of irrigation water into any public road or highway. Such water results in damage to the roads and is a very serious safety concern.

§ 24-1-116. Restrictions upon damming streams; generally.

No person or persons, company or corporation, or association of persons, shall be permitted or allowed to dam the water or waters of any stream or irrigating or mining ditch or any waterway so that the water thus dammed, or any part thereof, shall overflow any public road or highway, or undermine, weaken or damage any bridge, or any walls or embankment of any road, nor shall any person, association or corporation owning or controlling any ditch or irrigated lands, allow any wastewater from the same to flow across or upon any public road or highway. Any person finding a public road or highway or any bridge flooded or damaged by such wastewater may report the same to the road supervisor of the county in which such road, highway or bridge may be located, who shall make an examination and report to the county attorney for the county. If the report of the said road supervisor shows that such damage has occurred, it shall then be the duty of the county attorney to institute proceedings against the party or parties whose negligence has caused such damage.

This law WILL BE ENFORCED in Platte County, and violators may be held responsible for damages to the roads, and are subject to fines or other penalties.

This applies to ditch water, waste water, and sprinkler systems in every part of Platte County. Your cooperation will be appreciated. Violators will be contacted by the Sheriff's Department.
