Securing the Town's long-term water future is a top priority for Castle Rock Water. Soon a big connection in the long-term water plan will be accomplished when the first drops of WISE (Water Infrastructure and Supply Efficiency) water make their way to Castle Rock. Construction on the local infrastructure of this South Metro WISE Authority regional project began in December 2016. Once connected to the regional pipelines, Castle Rock will see renewable water imported from northern sources by late 2017.
The more than 5 miles of pipeline will be constructed within an existing Xcel Energy utility easement from the Parker Water and Sanitation District distribution system at Outter Marker Road to the Ray Waterman Regional Water Treatment Center. Completion of the approximately $14 million pipeline is scheduled for summer 2017.
Water service will not be interrupted and little, if any, construction activity will be on neighborhood roads. Access to the Castle Oaks Estates Dog Bone Park may be limited at times. Portions of Desert Ridge Circle, Autumn Sage Street and Castle Oaks Drive will be crossed with an open cut but access will be only restricted for short periods of time.
