No Recreational Water Use in Gunston Cove Area Until Further Notice

Fairfax County is closing the waterways in the Gunston Cove area to recreational water use, including kayaking, fishing and swimming, until further notice.  The waterways may be impacted by run off from a ruptured sanitary sewer line near Route 1 and Colchester Road in the Fort Belvoir area.  Repairs on the sewer line will take a couple days and signs will be placed Saturday morning in the area to alert residents.  County personnel are monitoring the waterways. 

For questions or information on when the recreational water use can resume, call the County’s Wastewater Collection Division 24-hour phone line 703-250-2003, TTY 711.
