Glovers Water Rehabilitation
The Glovers Distribution Pipe Rehabilitation Project is replacing 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.
The project for phase 1 is underway and it was found that the road is not holding up well to the street cuts and heavy equipment and is no longer a candidate for patching back, as originally planned. The road was scheduled for reconstruction under the Pavement Maintenance Program managed by Public Works in 2027. Castle Rock Water was planning a project in 2025 to replace aging sewer service lines in advance of the future road reconstruction.
Town Council approved a change to the scope of work on July 20, to have Castle Rock Water replace the aging sewer service lines and the street pavement in 2021 and 2022.
The sewer mains in the Glovers neighborhood were rehabilitated with Cured in Place Pipe lining in 2013 and has extended the life of these mains for another 40 to 50 years. As noted in Town Code, service lines from the sewer main for the individual user are owned and maintained by the property owner. However, Castle Rock Water is, at our expense, replacing these lateral lines from the sewer main to the sidewalk, in the public right-of-way, to help minimize future street cuts by residents that need to replace potentially failing sewer lines in the street.
Phase 1: Construction will begin mid-May 2021 and continue through December 2021
The first phase will be constructed this year and will include Douglas Fir and Elm avenues; Park and Hill drives; and Elm and Hill courts. Sanitary sewer laterals should be complete by the end of October. Paving is schedule for completion by the end of November, weather permitting.
Phase 2: Summer 2022
The water mains and sanitary sewer service laterals in the remaining streets - Ash Birch and Decar avenues; and Stone Drive - will be replaced during the summer of 2022. Reconstruction and repavement of streets will follow.
Access and Disruptions
When your waterline and sewer line are connected to the new main, your water service will be disrupted for four to six hours, for each effort. To minimize any inconvenience, affected customers will be given advance notice, typically a minimum of 48 hours, when these disruptions are planned. Temporary and intermittent disruptions to water services may occur periodically throughout the project.
Traffic detours will also be necessary. Access to resident's property will be maintained throughout the project.
Additional notice regarding repaving of the street and access limitations will be provided to the residents.
Construction activity is scheduled 7 a.m. - 6 p.m., Monday - Saturday.
The Phase 1 construction contract was awarded to T. Lowell Construction, for approximately $1.9 million. The construction contract for Phase 2 has not been awarded yet.
On July 20, 2021, an additional $1,375,770 is being requested for approval from Town Council for the added scope of work for sewer lateral replacement and street pavement.
