Castle Rock Water (a department of the Town of Castle Rock)
“Be Water Wise” is the department’s motto, and they truly take it to heart, as they strive to provide and preserve this precious resource for town residents and businesses. That effort includes daily operations, maintenance, asset management, upgrades and expansions associated with the Town’s water, wastewater and stormwater systems.
The Utilities Department oversees these areas:
>> Water and water resources – Water procurement, treatment, distribution, sales and storage; capital improvement projects; securing and managing long-term water supplies; and water conservation programs
>> Wastewater – System planning and engineering; lift station and sewer line operation / maintenance; capital improvement projects; and wastewater conveyance
>> Stormwater – Long-term planning; capital improvement projects; and floodplain program administration, including inspections, operation and maintenance, continued implementation of permit requirements, FEMA flood mapping and master plans for all major drainageways within town
Castle Rock has been using a tiered water rate structure for more than 20 years. In more recent history, the structure became individualized for each Castle Rock resident.
Whether you have all grass, or if you have a xeric landscape, you only pay for the amount of water you actually use. It’s all part of Castle Rock’s proactive measures to ensure that the Town has water for its future.

CORE Electric Cooperative
CORE Electric Cooperative serves more than 165,000 members along Colorado’s Front Range. Our nearly 5,000-square-mile service area includes portions of 11 counties to the east, west and south of Denver.
We are the largest electric distribution cooperative in Colorado, and one of the largest in the U.S. As a member-owned cooperative, CORE operates on a not-for-profit basis. Earnings beyond expenses are invested in the infrastructure used to provide reliable electric service or booked as member equity. Some of this equity is typically returned to members each year as capital credit refunds.
CORE is governed by an elected board of directors. Our service area is divided into seven geographic districts based on population. Members within each district elect a fellow member to serve on the board and represent their interests regarding CORE business and policies, including service rates and regulations.
CORE purchases wholesale power under long-term agreements with several providers. We also purchase the output of several utility-scale solar facilities, and own and receive a share of the generated power from the Xcel-operated Comanche Unit 3, a supercritical, pulverized coal plant in Pueblo.
CORE’s headquarters is located in Sedalia, about 20 miles south of Denver, and our district offices are in Bennett, Conifer and Woodland Park.
* Renewables accounted for an atypical share of our 2021 energy sources due to a prolonged outage of the Comanche 3 power plant.
