Watercraft on the Lake Closure Statement

Evergreen Lake continues to be closed to private watercraft. This is due to there there being no official monitoring of the lake and Aquatic Nuisance Species (ANS) inspections for watercraft. The groups that will be on the lake periodically in the next few weeks are groups managed by Denver Parks and Recreation. The City and County of Denver owns Dedisse Park and Evergreen Lake and maintain their right to use their lake. Denver officials are responsible for the management of their program and have agreed to provide(ANS) inspections of watercraft to be used on Evergreen Lake. Evergreen Metro, Evergreen Park and Recreation District, and Denver Parks and Recreation are working together on a lake management program that will strive to protect the high quality of the Evergreen community drinking water supply while continuing to offer lake recreational opportunities to the public.
