Stormwater - Floodplain Management Plan 2023
- FAIRFAX COUNTY, Va. - With weather related flooding being the most common and costly natural disaster across the United States, Fairfax County is continuing efforts to mitigate flooding problems for residents. Floodplains are areas adjacent to stream channels that provide natural storage areas for excess water to accumulate and overflow when heavy storms occur.
Lake Accotink
- More than 24 hours after bacterial testing began on the water in Lake Accotink following a sewage spill, results show bacteria levels are not elevated. This indicates the cleanup effort was done in time to prevent downstream contamination from reaching Lake Accotink. As a result, there is no continued concern regarding human exposure to untreated sewage in the lake.
