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.
 Standup Paddle Colorado (SUPCO) Boat Rental Operations will resume on Thursday, June 22 from 10:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. All Recreation Department open water swimming programs in Nottingham Lake are back on! Dunk-N-Dash race series kicks off on Monday, June 26 at 6:00 p.m. and Drop-In Open Water Swim will begin on Thursday, June 29 from 5:30 - 7:00 p.m. Community members can visit for more information or to register.
