Partnership Fosters Expansion of Beneficial-Use Water for Wyoming’s Ranchers

Marvin Nash, Strategy Specialist for the Beneficial-Use Water Alliance (BUWA) and Jim Magagna, Executive Vice-President of the Wyoming Stock Growers Association (WYSGA), jointly announced their partnership to facilitate opportunities for ranchers throughout Wyoming to receive beneficial-use water for their agricultural needs.

“At BUWA, we are bringing all the stakeholders together to take industrial by-product water and transform it into beneficial-use water to make sure the ranchers and landowners have useful water for their own ranch’s needs. Partnering with WYSGA allows us to help their members more effectively,” says Marvin Nash.

“We recognize how essential sufficient water is to Wyoming agriculture. We welcome the partnership with BUWA to make sure that water can be put to use on ranches, instead of disposing of the water,” says Jim Magagna.

BUWA’s sister company, Encore Green, LLC uses the patent-pending Conservation By-Design™ methodology to take industry by-production water, primarily from oil wells, and clean up the water to match the soil’s makeup on the rancher’s own land. The methodology has been proved and is built upon the need to scientifically test the makeup of both the surrounding soil and the by-product water across multiple data points. Once tested, the water cleaning plan is devised and the cleaning begins. Once cleaned, the water is re-tested for effectiveness, and then applied to the land.

“There are very legitimate concerns about what happens to our environment. We hold that the land itself should be in charge of what happens to it. The one person that will make sure the land is protected is actually the rancher. That’s why any plan about transforming the by-product water needs the rancher in the center of it,” adds Marvin Nash.

Established in 1872, the Wyoming Stock Growers Association serves the Wyoming cattle industry by protecting its economic, legislative, regulatory, judicial, environmental, customs, and cultural interests. You can learn more at
