Leyden Lake is a City of Arvada stormwater detention facility located at Highway 72 and W 82nd Avenue. The City was recently informed that stormwater was being held in the lake longer than permitted by the City's water rights. The detention of water in this facility is being addressed through maintenance operations beginning with the repair and replacement of the drainage valve located low in the lake.
In order to work on the valve, the water level in the lake will be lowered approximately 6 to 10 feet to provide access to the valve. This work will take approximately three weeks to complete.
