Castle Rock Water
Securing our future drop by drop
In 1900, the Castle Rock Journal highlighted our role as a leader in long-term water planning and conservation. After 130 years, Castle Rock Water continues this leadership role and takes
to heart its responsibility to protect and preserve the Town's precious resource.
We take our mission very seriously - to provide our community with exceptional service that protects public health and balances social, environmental and fiscal responsibilities in a sustainable manner.
Castle Rock Water is municipally-owned and provides three distinct water services - drinking water, wastewater and stormwater.
Our drinking water service consists of several treatment plants and the distribution systems to provide safe, reliable water to Town residents and businesses.
Water service includes acquiring the sources of water and ensuring supply for our customers now and in the future. As part of this service, we also protect public health by providing safe drinking water and sufficient supplies for fire safety.
WastewaterWastewater is the proper conveyance and treatment of the used water from homes and businesses. Castle Rock Water manages the sewer lines and systems for wastewater in the Town and is a directorial partner in the regional wastewater treatment facility.
Castle Rock Water also manages stormwater which is the rainfall, snow melt and runoff that flows through our community. Stormwater management minimizes flooding and maintains water quality.
We welcome an engaged community and invite our customers to stay informed with how Castle Rock Water serves our community and is making huge strides in ensuring a strong water future.
