Ground water well drilling at PS Miller Treatment Plant and Plum Creek Golf Course
As Castle Rock Water diversifies the community's water sources with renewable surface water, continuing to use our primary water source, deep water wells, is important. Two obsolete wells are being replaced by the PS Miller Water Treatment plant near the Plum Creek Golf Course. These wells are expected to produce 0.43 million gallons of water per day for both the PS Miller Treatment Plant and Plum Creek Water Purification Facility.
Late February to July 2018
Mobilization - late February
Drilling - March through April; drilling will continue 24 hours a day for approximately 6 to 8 weeks. Around the clock drilling is necessary to ensure proper well integrity during the drilling process. In order to help dampen the rig noise, a 16 to 24-foot sound wall will be installed around the site.
Well construction - May through June; after drilling is complete, work will continue from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday. No weekend or evening work is scheduled.
There will be no disruption in water service due to this project.
The site will be restored to its current condition.
The sound walls are expected to enclose all construction equipment and construction traffic will be retained to Plum Creek Parkway and the PS Miller Treatment Plant access road.
No public roads or trails are planned to be closed.
