The Town’s water future is Castle Rock Water’s No. 1 priority. But, accomplishing that priority while protecting the community’s environmental future is also important. That’s the message of the department’s new recognition for environmental leadership.
Colorado’s Environmental Leadership Program recently awarded Castle Rock Water Director Mark Marlowe with the 2021 24-Karat Gold Award. The organization honored Marlowe for going above and beyond required job duties to create and implement a sustainable initiative to impact the environment, the economy and the community.
Castle Rock Water was specifically recognized for its reuse water project. Ultimately, reuse water could account for one-third of the Town’s annual water consumption.
“It’s really humbling to receive this award from Colorado’s Environmental Leadership Program,” said Marlowe. “Reuse water was truly a team effort. Our water resource analysts, treatment engineers, water quality consultants, financial analysts and outreach specialists all worked together to make reuse water a viable option for long-term water in the Castle Rock community.”
The Environmental Leadership Program is a statewide program that recognizes and awards organizations that go beyond compliance with environmental regulations by advancing sustainability in Colorado.
