The Lake Monticello Water Rescue and Dive Team was formally established in 1987.  We have specialties in swiftwater and floodwater rescue, dive rescue and recovery, boat operations and rope rescue.


The Water Rescue and Dive Team is made up of volunteers from all walks of life. The membership consists of men and women who are active or retired military, law enforcement, nurses, secretaries, farmers, business executives, engineers, paramedics, etc. We provide emergency services for anything water-related for residents of Lake Monticello, Fluvanna County and the surrounding localities on a 24 hour - 7 day a week basis.
