Providing for our future
Castle Rock Water oversees the Town's water, wastewater and stormwater systems. Securing long-term water for our future, drop by drop, is one of the most important goals that we strive to meet, and work towards every day.
Today, a large quantity (approximately 85 percent) of the Town's annual water supply comes from nonrenewable Denver Basin groundwater while only a small portion (approximately 15 percent) comes from renewable supplies along Plum Creek. The nonrenewable Denver Basin groundwater won’t last forever, so it’s important that we continue moving to a renewable water supply.
In accordance with our current plan, we are striving for a 75 percent renewable water supply by the year 2050. Learn more about our long-term renewable water plan.
