Watering Schedule

Residential

Water is a limited resource in our semi-arid, high-altitude climate. Using water wisely not only saves you money, but it’s the right thing to do. 

Castle Rock Water’s mandatory summer watering schedules are in effect May 1 through Sept. 30.

Residential watering is permitted every-third day before 8 a.m. or after 8 p.m. on your designated watering day. All water customers are assigned a square, circle, or diamond, identified by the last number of the street address. Your symbol identifies your prescribed watering days.

Certain streets in Founders Village follow a different schedule and residents are notified each year if this schedule affects their watering day. 

Failure to follow the watering schedule or incurring water waste can result in a watering violation.

Non-Residential

Non-residential properties must adhere to a three-day-a-week watering schedule. This schedule is similar to what is being followed by residential customers, and will help Castle Rock Water manage peak demand during irrigation season. 

Watering hours are 10 p.m. through 6 a.m. and are in effect from May 1 through Sept. 30.

  • Properties west of I-25 are designated Monday, Wednesday, and Friday
  • Properties east of I-25 are designated Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday

Failure to follow the watering schedule or incurring water waste can result in a watering violation.
