The McKay Lake project utilized approximately 17,000 sf of the ArmorFlex Class 85L articulating concrete block (ABC) mat system for the construction of an emergency spillway. McKay Lake is one of many lakes owned by the City of Westminster. This lake serves as the centerpiece of the McKay Lake Open Space Park and is open to the public `for fishing, bird watching, and walking on the trails throughout the area.

The ArmorFlex ABC system was installed over a layer of Mirafi Filterweave 300 which was used to retain the sand bedding material. The contractor utilized a 45-ton crane to install the mats completing the job within the designated time frame. Not only will the ArmorFlex mats provide superior emergency spillway protection for the entire McKay Lake region, but its durable material will withstand the elements for many years to come.
