Our Second Dam Exercise of the Week! We're always exercising our emergency plans because severe weather can strike at any time. Today, Fairfax County, the City of Alexandria, and the Lake Barcroft Watershed Improvement District held a virtual tabletop exercise to rehearse what the response to flooding upstream and downstream would look like. It is a good reminder that all emergency plans should be reviewed and exercised to remain updated!
