Along with its beauty, Colorado winter can bring challenges. Whether you have lived in Colorado for many years, or just moved to the area, it takes time to adapt to the ways of winter. This year in particular, Castle Rock has experienced several significant storms, and ice has begun to build up on sidewalks and streets.
The Town’s Public Works and Water departments work in partnership to tackle the issue of ice. Along with the Town’s ice-control methods, residents can be of great help. Here are few things to consider when managing ice around your home:
The Town does provide ice breaking within roadways between each gutter for extreme situations. Residents can all Public Works at 303-660-1020 to request assistance.
Once an ice issue is brought to the Town’s attention, the area is systematically evaluated and then prioritized on a list for follow-up treatment. When needed, ice breaking is also prioritized based on the severity of ice buildup in the roadway as well as traffic volume.
It should be noted that not all icy areas will be cleaned up by the Town, but rather left to melt on its own. If you believe excessive ice is due to a water leak, call Castle Rock Water at 720-733-6000 for a water usage check.
Thank you for your assistance as we work cooperatively to combat these ice issues that are so common to Colorado winters.
