Nottingham Lake Reopens
Bacteria levels subside and the lake is now open to all users
Effective immediately, Nottingham Lake is now open to all users. Town of Avon staff retested the lake water on Monday, June 19 and received updated results on Wednesday, June 21. The most recent test of the lake water yielded a concentration of E. coli well within the acceptable limit at 37.9 organisms per 100 milliliters. Per the State of Colorado Natural Swimming Area regulations, the maximum acceptable level of E. coli is 235 organisms per 100 milliliters.
Town staff will test the lake water daily through the week to ensure bacteria levels have returned to a normal range. Throughout the season, Town staff test the lake water on a weekly basis and once a month during a “Peak Use” time.
