The sun is shining and temperatures are soaring! Summer is in full swing. While barbecues and get-togethers are a priority, conservation should also be top of mind. We need your help! Now that Castle Rock is transitioning to a renewable water supply, it’s even more important to adjust outdoor watering in response to weather conditions.
The hot, dry weather in June and early July, and the lack of rain, has resulted in East Plum Creek dropping to very low levels. This means we have less renewable water supply than normal. Since East Plum Creek is one of our key renewable water supplies, we are asking customers to voluntarily reduce outdoor watering by 20 percent. Two minutes – that’s it! If you normally run the sprinklers for 10 minutes, cut back to 8 minutes.
Being mindful of conservation will help keep our water supply reliable and protect our supplies in East Plum Creek.
