western range & water (WRW) – at your service

Western Range & Water, Inc. (WRW) is an environmental and regulatory consulting firm with headquarters located in Buffalo, WY. We specialize in regulatory compliance, state and federal permitting, water resource services, vegetation sampling and monitoring, wildlife surveys and habitat assessment, geospatial services, and field inspections for permit compliance.

BUILT BY hard work and solid environmental, business, and regulatory ethics

Wyoming has been characterized as “a small city, with very long streets”, describing how integrated the community is over the extended and diverse geography of the “Cowboy State,” and WRW is part of that community.

We have decades of accumulated experience and local relationships built by hard work and solid environmental, business, and regulatory ethics.

We also have built and maintain relationships with other professional service providers (Engineers, Archaeologists, Paleontologists, Air Quality Specialists, Attorneys and etc.) and are able to provide complete cradle to grave environmental and regulatory project management.
