Enjoying Water While Protecting It

Drinking water is becoming a limited resource in Colorado with the growing population. Douglas County municipalities have put water restrictions in place in order to aid with the growing population and water demand. In 2012, construction of the Rueter-Hess Reservoir was completed to provide safe, clean drinking water for the residents in Douglas County. This project has solved the long-term water shortage problem. With the large amount of open space surrounding the reservoir, municipalities in Douglas County have partnered to find a way for residents to enjoy recreational activities in the area by developing a Recreation Master Plan. These municipalities include the City of Lone Tree, City of Castle Pines, Town of Castle Rock, Town of Parker, Parker Water and Sanitation District, and Douglas County. These recreational opportunities include hiking, fishing, kayaking, and much more!
