Community Update – 3-5-21


Tree Removal by the Dam The MPOA office has received calls regarding several trees around the dam marked with yellow tape. According to Virginia Dam Safety Regulations, trees should never be allowed to grow on the dam’s embankment, at the outlet, plunge pool or spillway area, or within 25 feet beyond the abutment contacts.

During last year’s inspection, the inspecting engineer reminded us about removing trees and other woody vegetation from the 25 foot area along the right abutment contact. The prohibition of trees beyond the groin is to ensure root systems do not penetrate the embankment.

The area where trees are removed will need to be graded to blend with the surrounding contour, and appropriate grasses established on all disturbed areas. The management staff and members for the Lake Management Committee have marked the area where trees and other woody vegetation will need to be removed in order to bring Montclair into compliance.
