Fishing Line Recycling
Announcing Fishing Line Recycling Containers
AVCA has installed monofilament fishing line recycling containers at our lakes. Please use them to properly dispose of used fishing line.
When disposed of improperly, monofilament can be hazardous to marine life, scuba divers and even boat propellers. Even when put in the trash, monofilament can end up harming wildlife at landfills. When possible it is best to recycle used fishing line.
 
Loudoun County’s Stormwater Management Program
As part of Loudoun County’s Stormwater Management Program, the County performs bathymetric (topography under water) surveys for stormwater management facilities within the County. 
Over the next several weeks, Loudoun County’s Department of General Services (DGS) will be performing a bathymetric survey of Ashburn Lake. This bathymetric survey will help the County understand the lakes bathymetric conditions and will assist the County in evaluating stormwater management improvements to the lake. 
For more information about the bathymetric survey at Ashburn Lake you may contact the Loudoun County Department of General Services (DGS) at (703) 777-0117 or by email stormwater@loudoun.gov
 
Want to go Native?
May 10th at 7PM at the Lakes Community Center
Internationally recognized native landscaping expert and host of The Native Plant Podcast, John Magee, is coming to Ashburn Village to introduce you to a trend that is taking our nation by storm – using native plants in your landscape! Saves money. Better for your health. Better for the environment.
AVCA has been associated with John for several years now. We were fortunate to be one of the early movers in the “going native” movement when he installed our Pollinator Gardens at Ashburn, Tippecanoe and Beech Lake in 2017.
