This is a beautifully detailed, laser engraved and precision cut topographical Map of Lake Anna in Spotsylvania, Louisa and Orange Counties, Virginia with the following interesting stats carved into it:
Max. Length: 17 Miles
Surface Area: 13,000 Acres
Max. Depth: 80 Feet
Interesting factoid: In 1968, Virginia Electric and Power Company (now Dominion) purchased 18,000 acres of farmlands in three counties along the North Anna and Pamunkey Rivers to provide clean, fresh water to cool the nuclear power generating plants at the North Anna Nuclear Generating Station adjacent to the lake. By 1972 the lake bottom was cleared of all timber and the dam was nearing completion. It was projected to take three years to completely fill the lake, but with the additional rainfall from Hurricane Agnes, the lake was full in only 18 months. The first communities broke ground at about that same time and now some 120 different communities dot the shores of the lake.
