Lake Anna Civic Association (LACA)
Posted on Aug 8th, 2019 Comments (0)
You have a considerable investment in your property here at the lake.  Have you thought about some of the "take for granted" things you don't know about?
Such as:  
Who tests the water quality you swim and boat in?
Who funds this effort?
Why doesn't Louisa County Government think the water you and your family swims in needs to be tested for eColi, fungus toxicity?  
Who broadcasts warnings not to eat certain fish from the lake?
Who funds the annual fireworks?
The answers are simple, the Lake Anna Civic Association tests the water, provides warnings, and funds the fireworks (maybe not in 2019 due to funding issues).  All for JUST $15.00 per YEAR!
Louisa County is not your friend when it comes to lake safety.  They don't fund water quality testing like Spotsylvania and Orange do and they didn't even support a law enforcement presence on the lake until there was a death.  Will you take the time and effort to go to Louisa County Board of Supervisors meetings to protest the lack of protection given the size of your property taxes?  Should LACA do this?
You spent thousands acquiring your property so you could enjoy the lake, $15 dollars to continue to protect it isn't too much to spend.

Harmful Algae Bloom Advisory Issued for Upper and Middle Pamunkey (including Terry’s Run) as well as Middle and Lower North Anna Branches – Lake Anna In Orange, Louisa and Spotsylvania Counties
Public Advised to Avoid Water Contact within Locations of the Lake

(Richmond, Va.) –The Upper and Middle Pamunkey Branches as well as the Middle and Lower North Anna Branches of Lake Anna in Orange, Louisa and Spotsylvania counties are experiencing a harmful algae bloom (HAB). The public is advised to avoid contact with the lake in these areas until algae concentrations return to acceptable levels. Some harmful algae, called cyanobacteria, can cause skin rash and gastrointestinal illnesses, such as upset stomach, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. The areas to avoid can be seen on an interactive map at www.SwimHealthyVA.com
LACA Members,
VA Dept of Health has issued new no-swim advisories on parts of Lake Anna.  Go to swimhealthyVA.com and click on the HAB map for details at the 4 sites that they tested (enlarge the map and then click on the red sites).  Since they are testing fixed sites vs actual algae blooms, the advisory covers all of upper Pamunkey, all of Terry’s Run, all of middle Pamunkey down to Stubbs Bridge, and middle North Anna from Holiday Bridge (719) to the splits.  The advisory is issued because the toxin producing bacteria exceed limits, but the actual toxins at the test sites were all less than measurable levels.  The advisory Says:  “The public is advised to avoid contact with the lake in these areas until algae concentrations return to acceptable levels.”
Doug Smith
President, Lake Anna Civic Association
Please think about joining LACA (for only $15 per YEAR)!  They are the ones who test the water and support many other community projects.
