Water restrictions are no longer in effect for the 2013 irrigation season.
Water used for outdoor landscaping accounts for the largest demand on Castle Rock's water system during spring and summer. The Town’s water supply is different from many Colorado communities’ supplies. Our water supply is groundwater-based and is nonrenewable – meaning rain and snow runoff do not replenish our water supply. Water conservation is critical to ensuring supply during peak summer demand and ensuring water resources for current and future residents.
Reminder: "Tis the season to winterize. Shorter days and cooler temperatures mean it's time to prepare your sprinkler system for cold winter months. Avoid damage from freezing with these simple tips:
- Thoroughly blow out all components with a low pressure (30-60 psi), high volume air compressor.
- Disconnect fittings and hoses from outside faucets and bring them inside for the winter.
