Water Efficiency Master Plan


Castle Rock Water is updating its Water Efficiency Master Plan (Plan) formerly known as the Water Conservation Master Plan. The Plan and conservation in general, is a key piece of the puzzle for Castle Rock’s long-term water plan. Our customers and the community continue to support being a leader in water efficiency and conservation as verified by the focus groups and online survey results we received as a part of our outreach to the community. 

Castle Rock’s gallons per capita per day water consumption in 2014 was 108 with our five year average at 122, well below the average for the Denver Metro area referenced in the draft State Water Plan of 155 gallons per capita per day. Continuing to be a leader in conservation and efficiency has the potential to save the customers and community tens of millions of dollars in renewable water investments over the next thirty years.   

As part of the plan update, staff received valuable and positive feedback from the community regarding conservation practices at home, feelings about water usage, and how the community would like to be educated about new conservation efforts. This feedback was included in the update to the plan that was released to the public on April 22, 2015 for a 60-day public comment period. Staff will then take the plan to Town Council for adoption in July 2015.  

A copy of the Plan and comment form are available. We encourage and welcome your feedback before June 22, 2015.
