Legacy Water Projects

Steps to secure our water investment
Securing water for our future is one of the most important decisions our community will make during our generation.

Obtaining a long-term, sustainable water supply is important, because it affects the value of our homes and businesses and the quality of life in our community.                       

Today, a large quantity (approximately 85 percent) of the Town’s annual water supply comes from nonrenewable Denver Basin groundwater while only a small portion (approximately 15 percent) comes from renewable supplies along Plum Creek. The nonrenewable Denver Basin groundwater won’t last forever, so it’s important that we continue moving to a renewable water supply that will provide up to 75 percent of the annual demand for water in Castle Rock.

This chart shows year-to-date (January – July 2014) total renewable versus nonrenewable water volumes.
