[ARCHIVED] Water purification facility grand re-opening event offers tours, workshops and games

Water purification facility grand re-opening event

You turn on the tap, and clean water readily flows. We often take for granted how easily we can access high-quality drinking water. Behind the scenes, Castle Rock Water has a complex, state-of-the-art facility that processes water to high standards before it reaches your faucet. 

The Plum Creek Water Purification Facility is open for tours, and you can see the impressive water treatment process firsthand at the grand re-opening celebration. 

Join us from 4 to 7 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 21, at 1929 Liggett Road, to see how 6 million gallons of water is treated daily to high standards. You’ll learn about the advanced filtration process that removes particles to microscopic levels and other advanced treatment processes. 

In addition to seeing the water treatment process, you’ll have the chance to ask our water engineers, planners and professionals about reuse water, long-term supply plans and conservation. 

Mini workshops will be held every 30 minutes. You’ll learn how to program your controller, get tips for winterization and find out about backflow prevention devices. Each workshop offers hands-on examples. 

Activities for children will also be provided, like Bottle Bash, bubbles and watercolors. Gourmet hot dogs, salad and an ice cream sundae bar will be available for a quick, tasty bite.
