A major reason the Town of Castle Rock and Castle Rock Water are efficient and successful is because of extensive planning. One of our primary plans that ensure a strong water future for our community is the Water Resources Strategic Master Plan. Originally developed in 2006 after the impact of a major drought had leaders thinking about the future, it has been updated over the years. It is time to update the outlook for securing our water supply once again.

 We welcome community input and invite you to complete this short survey.

The survey is open through Friday, October 19

Question Title

* 1. To begin, please rate your awareness level regarding the water issues facing the future of Castle Rock and the surrounding areas.

Question Title

* 2. How would you like to receive information about water issues, project and infrastructure development and general information? (Check all that apply)

Question Title

* 3. Conserving water now means the Town will have to purchase less in the future. Since 2006, Castle Rock has adopted measures to conserve/reduce approximately 20 percent of the Town’s water use. The current draft of the Water Resources Strategic Master Plan incorporates additional efforts. To what extent do you believe these additional conservation efforts should be a part of the Town’s long-term water plan?

Question Title

* 4. Water from a creek or river is renewable and replenished each year from snowpack or rainfall, whereas water from an underground aquifer is ‘mined’ out.  Assuming that purchasing renewable water from creeks and rivers has the same cost as mining the underground aquifer, to what extent do you support or oppose the Town purchasing and importing renewable water?

Question Title

* 5. The current draft of the Water Resources Strategic Master plan shows that water reuse is a cost-effective option for increasing the sustainability of the Town’s water supply. Reusing or recycling water is collecting treated water from a wastewater plant that has been discharged into a river or stream, processing it through a water purification plant and then distributing that water for residential use. To what extent do you support or oppose the practice of reusing/recycling purified water for residential use?

Question Title

* 6. How familiar are you with the work Castle Rock Water is doing with various partners such as other towns and regional associations in an effort to share costs and resources?

Question Title

* 7. The Town has purchased storage rights in area reservoirs such as Rueter-Hess and Chatfield. The plan is to acquire additional storage as the Town determines that more storage is needed to meet seasonal demands. How strongly do you support or oppose these efforts?

Question Title

* 8. Castle Rock Water conducts annual financial modeling and analysis for the options outlined in the long-term water supply plan. The financial analysis shows that regardless of the efforts taken, water rates will need to increase over time.
