Dam Safety

Owners of dams in Prince William County are responsible for the care, maintenance and safety of the dam.  In addition, property owners with dams on their land must maintain the structure and ensure safety.  The Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation offers guidelines and information on the proper care of dams and safety standards.

In Prince William County, the Department of Public Works is responsible for maintenance and safety at three dams:

Lake Jackson Dam

Silver Lake Dam
