CHEYENNE – Statewide leaders in agriculture recently launched an initiative to clean oilfield wastewater for use in arid western states, hoping to reduce the region’s carbon footprint and improve the lives of ranchers and farmers.

“Just Add Water” would deliver new water sources to western states such as New Mexico, Texas, Colorado, Oklahoma, North Dakota and Wyoming – oil producers that typically see 15 inches of rainfall or less per year.
