Virginia is in a drought right now. Lakes all over the state have low water levels. Now is a good time to build, repair or add-on to your dock. For the do-it-yourselfer, you can rent an auger and drill your oun hole for the poles. Once the water comes back up, you may have to hire a company that has a special boat to drive them in. If you plan to do anything at the waters edge, you must check the rules of 'Shoreline Management" in your area and get permits if necessary before you begin.
