Lake Water Quality Improvement

Water used throughout Washington Park is recycled waste water from Denver Water.

In the fall of 2016 a new aerator pump was added to Grasmere Lake to raise oxygen levels. This change led to the relocation of one Solar Bee array to Smith Lake. There is now a solarbee array in each lake in Wash Park.

Medora Corporation SolarBees mixers:

“take advantage of the way water forms thin horizontal layers in all reservoirs. Utilizing solar power and highly efficient motor / mixing drive systems, the SolarBee® pulls in water at the desired depth from all corners of the basin providing effective mixing to a predetermined depth.  SolarBees are designed to operate 24 hours per day on solar power..”
