Magnuson Lake Update
Posted on Jul 23rd, 2019

Please be advised that there has been a structure failure of the dam at Magnuson.  Due to piping reaching it's approximate 50 year life span, corrosion has set in and cause a major failure.  This has resulted in the water draining from the pond at this time.  The Board immediately took action to assess and oversee the situation, including input from Snare and the Florissant Fire Department Chief.  Teller Country Roads and the Sheriff are in the process of being contacted to alert them as well.  The water cannot be stopped and must drain.  Once it has drained, the Board will take action to address the situation in efforts to assess the cost for work to be done to rectify the situation to bring back the potential of the pond for the community.
More information will follow as it becomes available.
Thank you for your understanding during this unpredictable situation that was inevitable due to the life span of the materials used at the time to put in the dam.
