In Castle Rock, residents are committed to conservation. They know, every drop counts. With the summer months, and irrigation season, right around the corner, Castle Rock Water wants to help residents start the season off on the right track. The Town’s Water Wiser workshops began in March and are a key tool to keep customers water conscious.

The interactive Water Wiser workshops teach residents how to detect outside water waste and how to make irrigation systems more efficient. Plus, get an in-depth look at what plants are appropriate for Castle Rock’s semi-arid high desert climate.

“We are proud our community understands the importance of conservation,” said Utilities Director Mark Marlowe. “These workshops really give residents the knowledge to take control of their water usage and understand their contributions to our community’s water supply on a deeper level.”

Once they’ve completed the course, participants will earn a “Water Wiser” designation. This designation exempts participants from the Town’s every-third-day watering schedule.

Keep in mind, while participants can water any day of the week, they are still restricted to an individual watering budget and must remember to water wisely. Also, the designation is tied to the participant, not the home. That means the Water Wiser designation would move with them to a new residence.

Over the past several years, Castle Rock Water is thankful for customer’s dedication to conservation. Together we have reduced the Town’s water consumption by more than 20 percent. That’s a step in the right direction. The ultimate goal in the Town’s long-term water plan is for the entire community to cut back another 18 percent by using water efficiently.

The Water Wiser workshops are free, but space is limited. Classes are held at different times and locations through mid-August. Get the class schedule, registration information and more at CRgov.com/waterwiser.
