- The Lake Barcroft Watershed Improvement District presented by Charles deSeve, Jerry Mendenhall, and George McLennan, LBWID Board of Trustees
- Representatives from the Lake Barcroft Watershed Improvement District (WID) will join us to share the fascinating history of Lake Barcroft and the WID and the value it brings to the Lake Barcroft Community. Located in Fairfax County near Seven Corners and the City of Falls Church, the Lake Barcroft community surrounds the unique asset for which it is named. Lake Barcroft is 135 acres in size and was built in 1915 to serve as a drinking water reservoir for the City of Alexandria. In the early 1950's, the reservoir, dam and 680 acres surrounding the lake were purchased by a Boston developer, who converted the lake to recreational use.
- In response to devastation caused by Tropical Storm Agnes to the dam in the 1970's, the Lake Barcroft Watershed Improvement District (WID) was created. The WID, with boundaries that coincide with the Lake Barcroft community, functions as a State Agency to maintain and operate the dam, manage water quality of the Lake, manage the discharges from the dam and maintain and improve the environmental integrity of the watershed above the lake. It is devoted to conservation and environmental responsibilities.
