Please help LACA raise $100,000 to Kick the HAB @ Lake Anna.
With the proper approvals from Virginia State Agencies and success in our fund raising effort, LACA will be attempting to mitigate HABs in four test locations on Lake Anna in 2022. Our goal is to eliminate VDH's Recreational No-Swim Advisories in those locations.
Kick the HAB
LACA's Water Quality (WQ) team and Virginia's Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) regularly monitor the lake and streams in the watershed. DEQ monitors the lake on a monthly basis. LACA monitors water quality parameters four times a year in April, June, August and October. LACA also works with DEQ and the Virginia Department of Health (VDH) to monitor for harmful algae blooms. Our algae and water quality data are available in the WQ Data pages. Virginia Department of Health (VDH) HAB info is available here. LACA's cyanobacteria sampling data and maps can be found at this link.
An expansion of the former LACA Environmental Education Committee, the Environmental Preservation Committee has turned its focus on the causes of the recent Harmful Algae Blooms, potential remediation and possible solutions to the issue. As a result they are also looking at other detrimental impacts to the beauty and enjoyment of Lake Anna.

As the summer boating season begins, there are numerous things you should check before heading out on the lake. In addition to ensuring your boat is in good operating condition, you should make sure you have all the necessary safety equipment on board. There are other tips to keep you and your passengers and others safe.
The committee also encourages everyone to be aware of your surroundings and know the various 911 emergency markings such as the bridge signs, yellow dock signs and island signs.
