While Castle Rock Water diversifies our water sources with renewable surface water, we also continue to utilize our primary source, deep water wells. Two obsolete wells have recently been replaced in The Meadows, one off Sweetgrass Court and the other at Butterfield Crossing and Rock Creek Drive. These wells help firm new supplies from the existing Denver aquifers. The wells enhance our water service and provide high quality drinking water to our residents.
Now that drilling of the new wells is complete, the construction of the well facility and connection to the waterline is being conducted primarily Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Some Saturday work may be necessary to complete the project on schedule. The new well facility for Well 231 will be located near the cul-de-sac at Sweetgrass Court.
The site will be revegetated to its current condition following completion of the project.
Well 27R is complete and a new fence will be installed on the property.
Well 231 – Facility construction began in December 2020 and will go through May 2021.

Hydro Resources-Rocky Mountain, Inc. was awarded the drilling contract as they have competitive pricing and have completed similar projects recently, under budget and ahead of schedule. Hydro Resources utilized some advanced technologies including glass beads, epoxy coating of drop pipe and nuclear magnetic resonance.
The contractor for the construction of the well facility was awarded to Velocity Constructors.
The total project cost is estimated at $5.1 million.
There are no road or trail closures expected, but residents may encounter construction traffic. For safety consideration, some lane closures may periodically be in effect.
There are no scheduled disruptions to water service.
