We are on public water! Read all about it here.
Our Community Well has died.
Results of the ballot issue on Deep Well Failure: 89 votes received. Option One 64% and Option Two 36%. Bills to Colorado Pump for testing and removal and Town of Castle Rock for Substitute Water Supply Plan (SWSP) for one year have both been paid. Attorney Jeffers has been commissioned to negotiate with the State Water Board to reduce our augmentation obligation since we have Roxborough water available for domestic use. Attorney Jeffers is further requesting the use of G3T water rights to allow the few Denver Well owners wishing to use well water for irrigation to do so.
Here are estimates from the Pump Repair company:

|The oldest decree W-8568 was for the first 100 lots and allowed irrigation of only 1,300 square feet on each lot. 82CW203 amended the original plan to substitute the LFH well as a source of replacement for the earlier described Arapahoe well.|
|83CW32 just increased the amount of LFH water decreed for the well on the subdivision. Some of that water was deeded to the POA to be used in the augmentation plans.|
|The next decree 89CW068 increased the irrigated area allowed on each lot to up to 3,900 square feet, and allowed up to 4 horses on each lot if the irrigated area is a little smaller. These augmentation decrees were for wells in the Denver aquifer.|
|99CW198 was to define the available water under the subdivision from the Arapahoe wells, and to approve an augmentation plan for those wells, including wells on the open space parcels for the first time. It increased the irrigated area to 5,000 square feet if an Arapahoe well is used.|
