Quick Fix Stops Sewage From Draining Into Lake Audubon

Reston Association

Update: 3:30 p.m. Tuesday – A permanent repair was completed Tuesday afternoon, Reston Association says.

Reston Association and Fairfax County Wastewater Management are working on a permanent fix for a leaky sewer pipe near Lake Audubon.

The sanitary sewer pipe located between Wakerobin Lane and Cedar Cove Court was discovered to be draining into Lake Audubon on Monday afternoon, RA spokesman Mike Leone said.

Fairfax County Wastewater Management was notified and dispatched workers to stop the leak. A temporary patch was placed by 7 p.m., and county personnel are expected to return to the site on Tuesday to determine how to permanently fix the pipe, RA says.

Testing of the water for bacteria levels will be done later this week, RA says. Residents are being asked to abide by RA’s regulations that prohibit swimming in any of Reston’s four lakes.
