Lake Anna is a 13,000 acre reservoir in the rolling fields and forested triangle formed by the cities of Charlottesville, Fredericksburg, and Richmond, Virginia. The lake was created by Virginia Electric and Power Company, now Dominion Energy, Inc., in 1972 to serve as a recreational lake and provide cooling water for the North Anna Power Station.

LACA's WQ Volunteers

Water Quality

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.  Information on LACA's Cyanobacteria Mitigation & Remediation Program is available at this link.

Environmental Preservation 

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.

Emergency Services & Safety

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.

Louisa Planning Commission to consider repeal of parts of Lake Anna Shoreline ordinance:

Adopted in 2005, the ordinance lays out development and design standards for overwater structures like docks, boathouses and boardwalks and largely mirrors Dominion Energy’s development guidelines.  Louisa County’s professional planning staff recommends that supervisors repeal two components of the ordinance, which address “Safe navigation” and “Neighbor policies,” because they mostly duplicate Dominion’s regulations. See Tammy Purcells Engage Louisa for details on this proposed change in County Code HERE.
