Channel improvements along Hangman’s Gulch Trail
Making sure the community stays safe from flooding is a top priority for Castle Rock Water’s Stormwater Division. With that in mind, the department will be presenting a construction contract Tuesday to Town Council for improvements along Hangman’s Gulch Trail. The improvements would be within the channel to help reduce erosion and sedimentation along the trail between I-25 and the confluence with East Plum Creek.
Council will consider the $676,065 contract with Hudick Excavating, Inc. If approved, construction would begin in February 2018. Weather permitting, substantial completion would be anticipated for June 2018.
Construction contract for new Founders Arapahoe water well
As communities throughout Colorado continue to grow, Castle Rock Water is taking proactive actions to help meet increased water demands. In an effort to secure additional water supplies and keep pace with demand, Castle Rock Water is planning to drill a new water well.
The Founders Arapahoe Well CR-227 will be located near Matney Park, and in combination with a Denver well drilled this fall, is anticipated to produce about .85 million gallons of water per day. Town Council will consider a construction contract Tuesday with Hydro Resources – Rocky Mountain Inc. The total drilling cost is approximately $1.6 million and is part of a larger $5.3 million project to incorporate the wells into the water system.
