For residents looking to build a dock on the lake, there are a few guidelines to heed before building.
- As required by Dominion Energy, an application needs to be submitted (see link below) that includes directions and a plat of your property. An onsite inspection will be made to make sure the request is in compliance with Lake Management guidelines. After the inspection approval or denial will be sent in writing. If approved a construction permit will be issued and must be displayed at the work location.
- When construction is completed another site visit will occur to inspect construction work. Approved docks will be tagged with a metal decal that must remain visible on the dock at all times.
