Water levels at Diascund Reservoir Park should begin to return to normal by the end of October, based on rain volume according to Karen Levy, Newport News Waterworks spokesperson.

Water levels are currently eight feet lower than full and boaters should use caution on the water. Newport News Waterworks began the drawdown in mid-September in preparation for necessary warranty work on and around the dam as well as to ensure the safety of contractors working at the site. The work is scheduled to be complete by mid-October. The Reservoir will begin to naturally refill based on rainfall volume.

Disacund Reservoir Park is located at 9551 Disacund Reservoir Park Road past Toano in Lanexa. For more information, please call Newport News Waterworks at 757-926-1062 or email
