Wintertime Pond Safety
-
Brambleton has several ponds located throughout the community. Although frosty ponds may look solid from the edge, it is unsafe to do anything other than enjoy the view since ponds rarely freeze evenly or solidly. Venturing onto a frozen pond puts your life and the lives of first responders at risk. For more information, read the pond safety article in the most recent Brambleton Magazine issue and visit Loudoun County's webpage.
