The InterConnect Pipeline Project

The InterConnect Pipeline Project is a collaboration between two South Metro Water members serving Highlands Ranch and Castle Pines North to reduce dependency on nonrenewable underground aquifers. This new infrastructure allows Castle Pines North to be 100 percent reliant on existing renewable water sources for half of the year from October through April, allowing the district to shut down wells in preparation for heavy demand during summer months. The InterConnect Pipeline is a model for how communities can work together, across jurisdictional lines, to solve problems and serve constituents.
