In January 2021, Fairfax County is working to remove debris from the retention pond on Monarch Lane to allow the water to flow through it as originally planned. This is a recurring problem, and current work should take about a month to complete.
More info: The Stormwater Management Office of Fairfax County drafted plans to rework the stormwater retention pond many years ago (around 2011). But, no action has been taken on these plans that were approved by the board of supervisors. Our project is on pages 5-211 to 213 of the Fairfax country report linked here. Alternatively, you can download a PDF of the three pages pertaining to our neighborhood at this link. The photo on 5-213 is an old photo of the original pond. We would like to form a committee to engage with the county to find a solution to our ongoing retention pond problem. Volunteer by emailing the board! Thanks.
