Nottingham Lake Swim Area Closure

Nottingham Lake Swim Area Closure

 

On Thursday, June 15, Town of Avon staff were notified that regular testing of the E. coli levels in Nottingham Lake provided results above the recreational standard limit. The swimming area was closed immediately and is anticipated to re-open Wednesday, June 21 if E. coli tests show the lake is back within a safe range for swimming.  

Heavy rain, groundwater runoff and low oxygen levels in the lake are the suspected cause of this test result. The Town of Avon works closely with Eagle River Water & Sanitation District for regular water sample testing and with the State of Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment to operate within safety standards for natural swim areas.

There is no swimming allowed during the closure and Avon Recreation Center open water swim programs are cancelled through Tuesday, June 20 at this time, including Open Water Swim on Thursday, June 15 and Dunk-N-Dash on Monday June 19. 

For comments, questions or concerns please contact Recreation Director Michael Labagh at 970-748-4446 or mlabagh@avon.org.
