On June 9, a strong rainstorm hit Mallard Bay near the
entrance to the community. It, reportedly, did damage to several of
the trees that lines the roadway at the entrance and also threw lots of
debris into the swimming pool.
Thel tree damage was quickly cleared away
by persons unknown and the pool was returned to its usual pristine
appearance by Property Manager Tanya Mitchell. Thanks to Donald
Mitchell, Tanya Mitchell and Mary McGuire for providing photos of the

Among the amenities provided to Mallard
Bay residents is a place for parking empty boat trailers, boats on
trailers, and recreational vehicles. At the annual general meeting
in 2019, the Mallard Bay Board of
Directors approved a set of rules that pertain to use of the
"RV Lot" as well as a form to be filled out by property owners
to register their particular vehicle.
Both the rules and the form to be filled
out to receive permission to park a vehicle on the RV lot can be found
by clicking the "Policies, Forms & Reports tab at the left,

In 2014 one of our Mallard Bay neighbors
was bitten on the ankle by a copperhead snake while gardening in her
yard. The snake was killed and the neighbor was treated with
anti-venom and was hospitalized for two nights.
Although rarely seen in
Mallard Bay, the snakes do come out to sun themselves on warm sidewalks
and pavement and are most often seen after they've been driven from
their natural habitat such as when vegetation is removed as is currently
the case with clearing of bushes and trees from Mallard Bay's lower dam.
Your best protection is
to be vigilant. and follow these recommendations:
particularly aware of where you are stepping and what you are stepping
poke your hand into any space you can't see into.
working in the yard or walking in the community, wear sturdy footwear,
preferably boots or shoes with high tops. Sandals and bare feet should
walking a pet, keep the animal under strict control.
If you are bitten, seek
medical attention immediately.

case you were wondering, the two lakes in Mallard Bay are
connected. The upper of the two is Flyway lake which drains
into the lower one, Eagle lake. The water in each lake is
held in place by its own separate dam. The State of Virginia has
rules concerning the dams and the Mallard Bay community is presently in
the process of insuring that we are obeying those rules by cutting
vegetation on the dam that can weaken the dam's structure.
In order to insure safety during the
cutting, the road that crosses the dam holding back Eagle Lake (the
lower one) is closed until further notice.
This photo shows the road across the dam
leading from southeast to northwest.
If you have any dam questions, please
contact Gary Yordy at 703-606-5989.
