INTEREST ITEM: The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) provided an online capability to review satellite imagery of the Lake Anna area for our water quality planning purposes. Instructions on how to access the web page are provided in a file linked to the above image from December 6th, 2020 (click on the satellite image to download the file).
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.
Check out our academic partnerships with Virginia Tech and Randolph-Macon College here.
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.
