Canyons Water Tank & Pipeline

Schematic of the Canyons Tank Project, In order to support our growing community and customer base, Parker Water & Sanitation District is constructing a new 5 million gallon water storage tank and pipeline in the Happy Canyon neighborhood. The project will include the following elements:

  • The tank will be located on PWSD’s property near the intersection of Mesa Drive and Outter Marker Road. The tank will be made of pre-stressed concrete, and it will be partially buried underground. 
  • A 24” pipeline that will run 1,580 feet and connect to Castle Rock Water’s WISE water line. The purpose of this line is to fill and empty the tank into the distribution system. 
  • An additional 16” drain line for the tank that will run 2,993 feet will also be constructed for infrequent use to drain the tank in instances that water quality does not meet standards, or in the event that the tank requires maintenance.
  • An emergency overflow outlet structure to be used very infrequently, namely in the event that the tank level instrumentation cannot communicate with PWSD's controls and the tank overflows. This typically happens when storm events cause power outages.  
  • A 30' communications tower and sensors associated with the new infrastructure will be constructed near the tank. 

PWSD has been planning this project for many years and has had construction designs in place since 2008. It has been postponed until now as other projects and funding have taken precedence. However, with the recent growth in The Canyons, it’s now necessary that we complete the project so that we can provide adequate storage and pressure to that part of our service area.
