The Town of Castle Rock entered into an agreement with Bell Mountain Ranch in 2022 to provide (drinking) water services to this community. The project includes a new 12-inch water main, water storage tank and pump station. The new pump station will be located in the Crystal Valley Ranch subdivision. The new tank will be located on top of the hill at the end of Cactus Rose Circle. The new 12-inch water main will be constructed between the Crystal Valley Ranch subdivision and the existing Bell Mountain Ranch tank site.
Since the purchase of the Bell Mountain facilities, staff has determined that the existing well infrastructure is failing and needs to be abandoned and re-drilled. Hydro Resources has been contracted for the construction, including drilling, completion and testing for the re-drill of BMR Well A-3 located east of the Bell Mountain Ranch treatment plant. The re-drilled well will replace the lost capacity to the BMR supply and expand future capacity for the Town at the completion of the future tie-in.
A neighborhood open house was held on Aug. 30, 2022.
- Storage tank: August 2022 to July 2023
- Pipeline: Fall 2022 to December 2023 (tentative)

The cost of the project is $4.5 million.
