Sediment Levels To Be Surveyed in Lake Audubon, Lake Thoreau

Sediment levels in Lake Audubon and Lake Thoreau will be checked later this month.

The lakes will be surveyed by Wetland Studies and Solutions Inc. to measure their sediment levels. Reston Association says the surveys will help the budget the funds needed to dredge the lakes over the next two years.

Nicki Bellezza, RA’s watershed manager, is responsible for monitoring, managing and maintaining the association’s lakes, ponds, streams and watersheds. Anyone with questions about the surveying process is encouraged to email her.

    I am stunned that these studies were not completed two years ago then Thoreau was supposed to be dredged last. We were told very recently that it would probably be next year.

      More examples of how poorly RA manages things?

    Just don’t decimate the fish populations like the lake anne dredging has seemed to. Used to be my favorite spot…

      And now you’re forced to go somewhere better… what a shame.

        Open to suggestions…

          Fishing off shore and in boat at Burke Lake is infinitely better than any of the lakes in Reston.

          Go to the fishing access and it’s free.

          If you like fishing bluegill, I’m not sure it’s possible to cast without getting a bite.

          I’ve caught some pretty big catfish near the dam at the end.

          Pretty decent bass too, although I haven’t caught any from the shore.

    Let the lakefront property owners pay for it

      Sure, then let’s make it so no one has access to the lakes except the property owners.
