Avon to review lake project

Daily staff report
Vail, CO Colorado

AVON, Colorado – The Avon Town Council will consider the topic of replacing the Nottingham Lake liner during Tuesday evening’s regularly scheduled meeting tonight. The discussion is expected to begin at 4:30 p.m. or soon thereafter. Information will be presented that addresses the project timing and scheduling of the lake liner replacement and the potential impacts to the summer events including the Xterra Mountain Championship Race, the Salute to the USA and other activities that typically occur on or near the lake. The public is encouraged to attend this meeting to understand and provide input on the construction management options, estimated costs and timetables.-

The well-documented leak in Nottingham Lake requires a liner replacement. The existing liner’s useful life is approximately 20 years but has been in service for nearly 32 years. Twice engineers have found and repaired holes in the lake liner, but they have also discovered that the liner has severely deteriorated, increasing the likelihood of additional holes and costly repairs. The decision to replace the liner was made by council last year and $1.25 million was allocated in the 2013 budget for the work.

The town will be active in communicating information about this project throughout the spring and summer. For more information on the project, contact Justin Hildreth, town engineer, at 970-748-4045 or jhildreth@avon.org.-
