Park visitors may notice Lake Fairfax‘s waters dipping below their usual levels next month.

The Fairfax County Park Authority plans to complete maintenance work on the main spillway at the Lake Fairfax Dam in early April.

FCPA spokesperson Judy Pederson says the work is part of a routine effort to maintain the functionality of the dam.

“The work is part of periodic maintenance to reseal concrete joints in the principal spillway structure to prevent seepage and to reinstall several energy dissipators,” Pederson told FFXnow.

The lake’s water levels will be reduced about roughly 1.5 feet to facilitate the maintenance.

Noticeable activity on the spillway is planned as part of the maintenance work.

Hunter Mill District Supervisor Walter Alcorn says safety measures will be in place, and pedestrians should still be able to access the trails and pedestrian bridge above the dam.

The 476-acre park in Reston includes a 20-acre lake within fishing, a swimming hole for families, boat rentals, playgrounds, shelters, and a carousel.

Carousal and boot rentals will resume on Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day.
