Eclipse 2017

“On August 21, 2017, the Natrona County community is estimated to have an additional 30,000-50,000 people in the Casper metro area and beyond.  The Casper-Natrona County Health Department is actively planning with many other stakeholders to assure that residents and visitors have a safe environment for enjoying the Eclipse festivities.”


The Public Health Preparedness Program at the Casper-Natrona County Health Department has been closely involved with emergency management planning and risk mitigation for this event.  The program is facilitating FEMA Emergency Support Function #8 Public Health and Medical planning for the Natrona County community.  Regular planning meetings are being held in conjunction with Natrona County Emergency Management.  For more information about Eclipse-related public health planning, please contact Audrey Gray, Public Health Preparedness Manager, at (307) 577-9737 or at
With all of the additional people in the community and the wonderful community events surrounding the 2017 Eclipse, our Environmental Health program has developed some guidance documents for vendors seeking temporary permits.  We also provide information about areas to fill potable water and to lawfully discharge wastewater.
