Flashback from the past – Fairfax Sign on Mt. Hope Rd.

During its fifty year ownership, the City of Fairfax did not manage the Beaverdam or Goose Creek Reservoirs as a recreational asset however they also did not actively restrict public access.

The above quote from Loudoun Water’s BCDR FAQ would have you believe that the city of Fairfax was turning a blind eye to reservoir access.    Funny how their sign says “Open for public use.”
