Now Hiring Lifeguards!
6 Mar 2014
Douglas Aquatics is now hiring lifeguards and gateguards for our pools.

Many questions have been asked about our snowy neighborhood roads after snow storms. The majority of the roads in Forest Lakes are state-maintained (some sub-associations are privately maintained), and all plowing
is done by VDOT.
The first roads to be cleared are Interstates and those considered primary travel routes. When those have been cleared, the secondary and neighborhood roads are plowed. The storm we
recently experienced brought a large
amount of snow, plus had an extra "bonus" later in the day, which put the plows back onto the Interstates and primary roads,
taking them off of the secondary roads. All VDOT plows and their contractors
were fully deployed and working around the clock. Their
goal is to get ALL roads passable within 48 hours of the last snowfall. If you have any specific questions or concerns,
you may call VDOT directly at 434-293-0011.
Transmission Line Update
Updated 5 Mar 2014
crews have completed all the foundations for the new
structures. In March and April, you will see big rigs
rolling in with the large pole sections. They will stage
the metal components at each structure location, and then
assemble them as they are going up. Then, the crews will
actually use the old structures to remove the old
conductor and pull in the new wires at the same time. The
new wires will then be shifted over and clipped into place
on the new structures before the old structures are
dismantled and removed.
We have updated our
with this information and some updates
on what is happening at the Hollymead substation. In the
next few weeks, you may be able to see a new structure go
up inside the station. This new structure, or backbone, is
where the new line will come in and connect.
Dominion is currently scheduled to energize the new line
by early May. This means 60 days left in construction!
Then, the crews will begin work to remove the old
foundations and restore all of the areas that were
