Castle Rock Water identifies water distribution pipe and appurtenances for rehabilitation based on a history of leaks, increased annual maintenance, age, and condition. Hydraulic modeling and fire flow testing sometimes determines when a pipe should be replaced with a larger-size pipe to deliver more flow. Pipeline repairs always involve open-cut trench work in the streets, so residents should be aware and obey any posted traffic signs.
With water system repairs, the water system must be shut down to relieve pressure and make the work area safe. Castle Rock Water will provide notice for planned shutdowns, and complete repairs as quickly as possible.
Terrain Flow Control Vault Project - 2021 through 2022
The Terrain Flow Control Vault Project is located near the intersection of Founders Parkway and Crimson Sky Drive. The project will install a new automated flow control valve in the water main along Founders Parkway.
The valve will work with the existing Oaks Valve to allow for a more efficient distribution of red zone water from the Ray Waterman Regional Water Treatment Facility, between Tank 14 and Tank 16 in the Terrain subdivision.
Timeline: Early spring 2022
Contract: This project has been awarded to ESI for a cost of $226,000.
New waterline installation
Glovers Distribution Pipe Rehabilitation Project - 2021 and 2022
The Glovers Distribution Pipe Rehabilitation Project is located east of South Gilbert Street, between Ash and Elm avenues. This project will replace the aging and undersized potable water distribution piping in this subdivision. With the replacement of the waterlines, Castle Rock Water is also bringing the number of hydrants and valves in the neighborhood up to current standards, making the area safe and less susceptible to water outages in the future. All of the main waterlines and the service lines connecting to each household meter will be replaced.
This project will be constructed in two phases. Phase 1 is summer 2021 in Douglas Fir and Elm avenues; Park and Hill drives; and Elm and Hill courts. Phase 2 is summer 2022 in Ash, Birch and Decar avenues; and Stone Drive.
