The Stormwater Division is funded through monthly services charges based on an urbanized footprint calculated for each account. New housing / commercial development is charged a development impact fee to account for downstream system improvements. This fee covers the cost of operation, upgrades, maintenance and improvements to the Town’s storm drainage facilities.
In accordance with Castle Rock Municipal Code, Chapter 13.30, Article 13.30.60, non-single family properties are entitled to appeal for an adjustment to the stormwater utility fee. To request a review of your stormwater monthly service charge, please complete the Request for Administrative Review form. Return form via email or mail it to us at:

Currently, the Stormwater division has several projects underway, specifically for the stabilization of stream banks and the safety of our community.
Hangman’s Gulch and E. Plum Creek improvements
Phase 3 of the improvements along Hangman’s Gulch from I-25 to East Plum Creek are scheduled from mid-February to June 2018. Improvements include the expansion of the outfall structure at the Union Pacific Railroad crossing and an upsize of the culvert crossing on the East Plum Creek trail. These improvements will help eliminate the flooding that can occur along the Trail. Hangman’s Gulch trail will be closed during this entire period with no access or detours. East Plum Creek Trail at the confluence structure will be closed for approximately 2 weeks at the end of the project schedule. A soft surface detour will be provided.
Wolfensberger Road Culverts at Omni Tributary
The existing corrugated metal pipe (CMP) culverts at this location, under Wolfensberger Road just west of Red Hawk Drive, are undersized and in poor condition. The Town will be replacing these pipes with a concrete box culvert to alleviate flooding risk for adjacent properties and travelers on Wolfensberger Road.
Construction is scheduled for fall of 2017, with completion expected by early 2018.

East Plum Creek South Well Field
Stormwater improvements to provide a predictable flow along East Plum Creek at Brookside Circle (across from Medved) have been completed. Improvements include grade control and bank stabilization, and are required to protect the Town's water supply system in this area.
Re-vegetation efforts to restore the area to a vibrant riparian habitat for wildlife and water quality are underway. Along with trees, shrubs and wetland plugs, soft surface trails will be placed. Completion is scheduled for spring of 2018.
