Loudoun’s Beaverdam Park closing
The largest lake in Loudoun County, which is used for boating, kayaking and nature watching, is closing for two years. Loudoun Water will partially drain the artificial Beaverdam Reservoir to make repairs to a spillway. The reservoir is expected to reopen in 2019 and will end up being larger. While more recreational uses are being looked into, the main purpose of the reservoir is for drinking water. The park will officially close on Nov. 1.
