Our Lakes

Lake #1:  HELP SAVE OUR DAM!

The dam on Lake #1 is in need of our repair.  We are preparing a grant application for financial help with the Park County Land and Water Trust Committee, which will be reviewed at their next meeting in February, 2019.  Harris Park has engaged in many fund raising activities to raise money to help with this project.  We still need your help.

Construction and repairs will begin in the spring of 2019.

                                            Lake/Dam #2 Completion Report

“During the period of September 15th through approximately December 6, 2016, Applegate Group, Inc. assisted the Harris Park Metropolitan District (HPMD) with construction observation for rehabilitation of the District’s Dam No. 2. The intent of the rehab is to address dam safety issues identified by the Colorado Division of Water Resources, State Engineer’s Office, Dam Safety Branch. Prior to construction, seepage was observed at the existing outlet discharge point, and also along the downstream toe of the existing dam embankment. Rehabilitation involved sliplining the existing outlet pipe, installation of a filter diaphragm around the lined outlet, and construction of a new toe drain system. The project also involved installation of a new slide gate and control, including a new staff gage. The project has been completed with general conformance to the approved plans and specifications.”                                                               January, 2017 Completion Report by:Steven A.
