NOTE: DEQ request for public input on impaired water prioritization. See LACA's input on the Water Quality Home Page.
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 from April through October. LACA monitors water quality parameters four times a year in April, June, August and October. LACA also monitors for harmful algae on a weekly basis starting in May. Our algae project runs through the beginning of November.
There is a great deal of data and information available on the algae and water quality conditions on the lake in the WQ Data pages.

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.

The 2020 fireworks show held on Saturday, July 4th was a success and planning is currently underway for the 2021 shoot, which is always fully funded by donations from our friends and family at 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.

Orange County Resort, LLC is a planned RV Resort with 150-175 lots along the Upper Pamunkey Creek near the Route 522 Bridge. The original concept was proposed as a 250 lot development with lots ranging in price from $100,000 to $375,000. Most recently the developers have shifted their focus to a rental facility with nightly prices ranging from $85 to $250.
The RV Resort would straddle the Orange and Spotsylvania County line and therefore will need approval from both counties to proceed as planned.
