News and Links

Fort Carson is Net Zero Installation: Fort Carson is one of two installations designated by the Army to achieve "Net Zero" energy, water and waste by 2020. As part of a Net Zero installation, community, Soldiers, Family members and staff all play a part in conserving water and energy and reducing, reusing and recycling waste to achieve these goals. For information about Fort Carson's Net Zero energy and water initiatives, call 526-1739, and for details about Net Zero waste initiatives, call 526-5898.

Recycle information: The Fort Carson community has an active recycling program through the DPW. Currently, there are four main recycle drop-off locations available on Post: the Recycle Center, building 155; the PX drop-off location; the Specker Avenue and Long Street parking lot collection point; and the Wolf Dining Facility parking lot collection point. For more information, call the Recycle Center at 526-5898.

Fort Carson authorized shut down of computers at the end of the duty day: As an energy conservation measure, the senior mission commander approved personal computers being turned off at the end of the duty day. When the computers are turned on again, they are patched with updates from the Network Enterprise Center and rebooted automatically, with minimal if any impact to users. If everyone one on Fort Carson turned their computers off at night, the initiative could save as much as $250,000 per year. For more information, call the Fort Carson Energy Manager at 526-1739 or the Net Zero Program outreach contractor at 526-4320.

Safeguard against winter plumbing woes: Freezing temperatures can wreak havoc on indoor plumbing during Colorado winters. A few simple measures can prevent freezing pipes from causing catastrophic damage to homes and barracks. Open cabinet doors if there are water pipes behind the cabinets to allow warmer, room temperature air to circulate, which helps prevent pipes from freezing. Do not lower the thermostat temperature below 55 degrees even when not at home. Insulate water pipes when possible. During extreme cold conditions, allow a small water drip from a faucet to ensure water flow in pipes. Ensure windows are closed when away from home.
