Frequenters of Lake Anne in Reston will notice a change in the waters of the lake. 

The lake’s fountain is currently not in operation after a mechanical issue was discovered, according to Reston Association.

Mike Leone, RA’s spokesperson, said that the fountain’s pump and motor burnt out. 

“Replacement parts have been ordered and right now we are being told it will be three to four weeks, if not longer, to receive the replacements parts,” Leone wrote in a statement to FFXnow. 

The timeline could change depending on supply chain and delivery demands, Leone added. 

The fountain was inspired by Jet d’Eau, a 140-meter single geyser fountain on Lake Geneva in Switzerland.
