New water well construction begins; construction to impact Matney Park


In a changing community, anticipating needs is important. That’s one reason why Castle Rock Water is working to secure our long-term water future. Whether it’s renewable or nonrenewable supplies, Castle Rock Water takes maintaining the community’s water supply very seriously. Now, a new well and pipeline is under construction in Castlewood Ranch. This well will enhance the department’s water service and help continue to provide high-quality drinking water for customers.

Work on the Castlewood Ranch 1 Well Facility began last summer. One well was complete, now work on the second well is scheduled to begin mid-February. Along with the second well, the project will include a well house and pipeline to connect the new wells to the Founders Water Treatment Plant.

In order to help dampen drilling rig noise, a 16-foot-high sound wall will be installed around the site. Drilling will continue 24-hours a day for approximately 10 to 12 weeks. The pipeline will follow the Xcel power line corridor between Lantern Circle and High Plains Place. Construction on the entire project, including site/trail restoration and revegetation, is expected to continue into the summer.

Have questions? Join the department for an informational open house to learn more about the project – 5:30 to 7 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 1 at the Ridge House, 4501 Enderud Blvd. Light refreshments will be provided.

It’s important to note, this construction project impacts the disc golf course at Matney Park. Sections of holes No. 1 through 8 may be inaccessible. Please be mindful of construction equipment and stay clear of any construction activity in the area. Also, a section of the paved trail between East Manchester Drive and Mikelson Boulevard will be closed. A rudimentary detour will be provided, however, it may not be handicap accessible.
