So maybe that smell wasn't the algae in Lake Anne

Finally, a nuisance lawsuit we can actually get behind.

Lake Anne of Reston Condominium Association filed a negligence lawsuit against Dominion Virginia Power in late February. The case is a result of "Dominion's negligent destruction of one of the Association's waste lines," according to the lawsuit, and LARCA is seeking a full reimbursement of the costs incurred to repair the line. LARCA President Rick Thompson said the dispute "wasn't easily settled so we had to get counsel involved."

In early January 2007, an underground electrical cable on LARCA's property stopped working, resulting in power outages, and Dominion was called to investigate the issue, the lawsuit states. Dominion hired D.A. Foster to make the repairs, "including boring into the ground and the replacement of one of the underground cables and a transformer." The work was completed in January 2007 and shortly after the owner of one of Lake Anne's commercial properties contacted LARCA to report a sewage backup on the property.
We deal with a lot of crap on this site, but this is a first.
