Burnsville Lake hosted approximately 200 visitors during its Open House on Aug. 31, 2014. Tours of the dam and water safety lessons were provided by Corps staff, volunteers, Friends of Burnsville Lake, West Virginia Department of Natural Resources and Burnsville Fire Department. While visitors waited to go inside the dam, they could mingle with representatives from other agencies. Corey, the water safety boat, and Bobber, the water safety dog, were on hand to entertain children. Despite the light rain that dropped in from time to time, the Open House was a great success.
