In order to save the lake in its current form a bond needs to be voted for in the fall of 2019. In order to get a bond on the ballot Supervisor Cook has challenged us to organize and get at a minimum a thousand signatures by Memorial day 2018. The bond is required to fund Option C of the Lake Accotink Management Master Plan. This the Forebay option with annual dredging. It has an initial cost of roughly $45 million with an annual cost of roughly $800,000 for maintenance and dredging of the forebay.
More details on this option can be found at: https://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/parks/sites/parks/files/assets/documents/plandev/lake-accotink/lap-mtg-presentation-012218.pdf on slides 16 and 17.
