Future Activities

The Water Quality Committee has several future projects in various planning stages.  We welcome your inputs on these future projects and any recommendations for other projects to consider.  Send your comments, recommendations and thoughts on how the Water Quality Committee can better serve our members to the Committee Co-Chairs, Mike Gelber and Harry Looney.

Shoreline Vegetation Project:  The Lake Anna Civic Association (LACA) recently was awarded a $$9,975 grant from DuPont's Clear Into the Future - 2023 program to introduce native aquatic vegetation in Lake Anna. The project is focused on education, outreach and the expansion of existing shoreline vegetation to establish natural nutrient consumers to reduce the amount of phosphorous and nitrogen available to the phytoplankton biomass in Lake Anna. Nutrients are primary food/energy sources for phytoplankton species that naturally occur in freshwater and are known to be primary contributors to the exponential growth of cyanobacteria that results in Harmful Cyanobacteria Blooms (HCBs).
