Reston, VA

Visitors to Lake Anne in recent weeks likely have noticed the absence of its trademark fountain.

The fountain, owned by Reston Association, has been out of commission since early June. It was taken to the nearest factory-authorized service center — in Jessup, Maryland — a week ago.

“Currently, RA is waiting to hear back from the service center with the cause of the problem and how long it will take to repair it,” said Mike Leone, RA’s director of communications. “Unfortunately, at this time we have no further information.”

Susan Cassell, of Lake Anne of Reston Condominium Association, was told last week that the fountain was pulled from the lake due to “repeated electrical malfunctions.”

In a 2015 interview with Washingtonian magazine, Reston founder Bob Simon said the fountain was inspired by the Jet d’Eau in Switzerland’s Lake Geneva.
