Indoor Tips

Water Use

Water Use GraphicTypically, a single Castle Rock resident uses about 117 gallons of water daily (2022 data). Our goal is to reduce usage to an average of 100 gallons of water per capita daily. Conserving water is financially beneficial, so we don’t have to purchase more water in the future and environmentally beneficial as we pump less water from the aquifers.

If each person in Castle Rock conserved an additional 1 gallon of water per day, the community would save more than 25 million gallons of water in a year. Castle Rock Water has tips to conserve more than 1 gallon of water a day on average. Imagine if every resident followed every tip. Let’s start with you!

Install WaterSense products

About half of the water used by Castle Rock Water customers is used indoors. One of the easiest ways to make the biggest impact is to install appliances, including faucets, showerheads and toilets, bearing the WaterSense® label. These products perform as well as, or better, than their less efficient counterparts and are at least 20% more water efficient.

Monitor water usage

Another recommendation is to install a whole-house water monitoring system with automatic shut-off. Connected at your meter, this device can alert you of unexpected water use and automatically turn off household water, potentially preventing damage from leaks. See how to qualify for a rebate!
