CHEYENNE – After several years of planning, Encore Green Environmental received a one-time permit from the Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality earlier this month to apply treated wastewater from oil drilling to farming operations, marking a huge step in the company’s attempts to get the new technology up and running.

The WDEQ permit allows the local agricultural company to apply roughly 7,000 barrels of produced water to private farmland near Pine Bluffs. Encore Green co-founder Marvin Nash said the permit marks the project’s turn from a plan into a reality.
