Founders, Castlewood Ranch and Lost Canyon Ranch Road
Project update: July 20, 2017
Castle Rock Water is developing the platted well site near the corner of Lantern Circle and Lost Canyon Ranch Road, east of Matney Park. A municipal well facility is being built to enhance our water supply and to provide high-quality drinking water to Castle Rock.
Well drilling began in mid-March with a projected timeline of 10 weeks. This phase of the project has reached some setbacks and is running longer than anticipated. When drilling resumes, drilling will take place 24 hours a day. Around-the-clock drilling is necessary to improve well productivity. In order to help dampen drilling rig noise, a 16-foot high and 300-hundred foot long sound wall has been installed at the site.
Once well drilling is complete, the second phase is the construction of the well vault. This facility will house the new wells. Construction is tentatively scheduled for late 2017.
The third phase of the new well site is connecting these wells to Founders Water Treatment Plant. Construction is anticipated for late 2107 / early 2018.
Upon completion of the project, the area will be re-vegetated. Despite setbacks, currently the timeline to finish the Lost Canyon Road Well Site remains mid-2018.
Note: Hole No. 3 at Matney Park Disc Golf Course is being impacted by construction fencing. Players have the option to either play around the fencing or avoid the hole.
