The Town of Castle Rock is located south of the Denver Metro area in a semi-arid, high-desert climate with more than 300 days of sunshine and receives 10 to 15 inches of precipitation each year. Due to its semi-arid, high-desert climate, the Town is prone to droughts, especially during the peak irrigation season of July through September. Compounding this challenge, by the year 2055, Castle Rock’s population has the potential to double in size, increasing water demand by approximately 84 percent over the 2020 demand, for an estimated future total annual demand of approximately 16,995 acre-feet. To help meet these challenges, Castle Rock is embracing water use efficiency as a way of life. The Town’s aggressive water efficiency measures are aimed at reducing future demands by 18%, or 2,700 acre-feet, by around 2050-2055.
