Public Engagement for RHR Recreation Master Plan The Parker Water & Sanitation District (PWSD) and its regional partners engaged the public for feedback toward developing the Rueter-Hess Reservoir Recreation Master Plan. Two different surveys were posted online, between November 2015 and March 2016, to get additional feedback from area residents about recreational activities at the reservoir. In addition, public meetings and other activities were organized to allow for ongoing public input as the master plan is developed over the next six to eight months.
The primary purpose of the Rueter-Hess Reservoir is to store and provide safe, clean drinking water. A Rueter-Hess Reservoir Recreation Authority was created with the five regional partners of Douglas County, the Cities of Lone Tree and Castle Pines, and the Towns of Castle Rock and Parker. The RHR Recreation Authority will oversee the master planning project. The process began in November 2015 and will be completed in the summer of 2016. A landscape architectural firm, Wenk Associates, has been hired to create the master plan. The goal of the master plan is to develop a range of recreational opportunities in and around the reservoir while providing safe, clean drinking water and preserving the tranquil qualities of the site.
