Loudoun Water will host a community information meeting on the future of the Beaverdam Creek Reservoir this Wednesday at 7 p.m. at Stone Hill Middle School in Ashburn.
The school is at 23415 Evergreen Ridge Drive.
In April, Loudoun Water abruptly closed public access to the Beaverdam Creek Reservoir, much to the exasperation of local residents who used the property for leisure. According to Loudoun Water officials, the temporary access restriction was necessary because Loudoun Water "has the responsibility to assess, understand, and plan key areas of ownership, including safety and security, liability, operational flexibility (required dam upgrades), water quality and property management.”
Loudoun Water purchased the reservoir and surrounding land, the Goose Creek Reservoir, Goose Creek Water Treatment Plant and the water transmission pipeline along the W&OD Trail to the Fairfax County line in January as part of a $30 million deal with the City of Fairfax.
