Future Activities

The committee has applied for a nearly $50,000 grant from the National Fish and Wildlife Federation to conduct a wetlands feasibility study as a potential avenue to reduce the influx of nutrients from the feeder streams into the lake.  

Wetlands slow the flow of water and allow the nutrients and pollutants to drop to the soil rather than mix into the water.

They are also continuing to work with the various Soil and Water Conservation Districts on developing partnerships with Virginia Tech and Randolph-Macon college for academia involvement on the harmful algae blooms.  

Additionally, the Environmental Preservation Committee is partnering with LACA's Water Quality Committee to continually monitor for signs of potential outbreaks of the algae blooms and for more specific information on the potential causes and environmental conditions leading up to the HABs.
