Castle Rock Water Update – 2019

2019 rates approved by Town Council 

In order to meet Castle Rock Water’s long-term water supply goal, water rates for 2019 will increase slightly on outdoor and excessive water usage. An approximate 3 to 4 percent increase to the volumetric Tier 2 and Tier 3, will take effect Jan. 1, 2019. Tier 2 is outdoor irrigation and Tier 3 is the excess water use.

Additionally, new development pays for its share of existing systems, as well as, future water supply. Therefore, fees placed on new development were also increased in 2019. For a single-family home, the system development fee is approximately $25,000, an increase of $1,800 or 8 percent.

Castle Rock Water conducts annual rates and fees analysis to ensure rates and fees are in line with financial obligations, and are comparable to other Front Range communities with similar water needs. Please feel free to give us a call at 720-733-6000 with any questions.
