It may be a while before Lake Anne’s fountain is functional again.
Repairs are expected to take at least two more months to complete due to supply chain issues, according to Reston Association.
“The repair facility is basically rebuilding the motor/working parts. It had to be done at their shop. They are experiencing part delays which is typical in this post-pandemic era,” RA spokesperson Mike Leone wrote in a statement to FFXnow.
The fountain closed in late August after its pump and motor burnt out. At the time, staff estimated parts would be available within three to four weeks.
Leone said that the association hopes that the fountain will be operational by Thanksgiving — assuming that the rebuilt motor arrives on schedule.
“If there are further delays, then it could be pushed into December,” Leone said.
The fountain was inspired by Jet d’Eau, a 140-meter single geyser fountain on Lake Geneva in Switzerland.
