COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – The South Suburban Reservoir, located adjacent to Stratton Open Space, will be closed to the public starting Wednesday, Oct. 14 through the spring of 2021. The area, a popular destination for dog owners, generally closes seasonally for the winter between first freeze and ice melt.

The extended closure this year will allow Colorado Springs Utilities to help ensure public safety while water levels are reduced in the reservoir to facilitate a periodic, required inspection of the dam by the State Engineer’s Office. The reservoir, built in 1932, serves as local water storage and has a capacity of 241 acre-feet.
