Conduit Lining Work at Bear Creek Dam

Published Dec. 18, 2019

 The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers would like to announce that no releases will be made from Bear Creek Dam during a one to two day period in early-January while the outlet works facility is prepared for conduit lining work. 

Low-level pipe corrosion was discovered in November 2015 during valve replacement work.  Conduit lining will be added to the low-level pipe during the month of January.  Releases will be made as usual following the one to two day period in early-January.

The Corps has coordinated the conduit lining work with the State of Colorado and the City of Lakewood.
