Parts of Castle Pines woke up without water Wednesday morning due to a water line rupture Tuesday night, the City of Castle Pines posted on its website.

The break happened while construction crews were trying to connect a new water line to the existing system, as part of the Monarch Waterline Rehabilitation Project.

"We anticipate that water service will be restored within the next few hours, and hope to have things resolved this afternoon," the City of Castle Pines said.

City leaders warn people living in the affected area of Castle Pines may experience water discoloration. But crews will flush the system after they repair the broken water line.

"At this time there are no water quality or safety concerns," the city said.

The Monarch Waterline Rehabilitation Project is working between Castle Pines Parkway and Glen Oaks Avenue to replace a major water line that dates back to the mid 1980s, according to the city.

The project will tear out the concrete roadway and replace it with asphalt. It will improve the drainage and storm water infrastructure and drainage infrastructure, as well as install 4,300 feet of new water line. It will also install a six-foot bike lane.

"Completing both the road and water line projects at once saves both money and time by reducing the need to remove infrastructure to replace the line in the future," the City of Castle Pines said.
