Volunteers Needed to Clean Occoquan River – the water supply for most of Eastern Prince William & Fairfax Counties

 

On Saturday, April 9, 2016 from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. (rain date April 23, 2016), Prince William Trails and Streams Coalition (PWTSC), a 501(c)3 organization, is conducting its 7th annual clean-up of the upper Occoquan River, from nine different sites along 25+ miles of the Occoquan River. The clean-up ranges from Cedar Run/Broad Run, through Lake Jackson, and from the base of Lake Jackson Dam to Hooes Run (south of Lake Ridge Marina). This cleanup is part of the Alice Ferguson Foundation’s (www.fergusonfoundation.org) Potomac River Watershed Cleanup. Friends of the Occoquan (www.friendsoftheoccoquan.org) will also be holding a cleanup at different shoreline parks along the Occoquan River on April 16, 2016.

 

PWTSC is partnering with the Prince William Soil and Water Conservation District, Prince William County Parks, Recreation, Prince William County Public Works, and Fairfax Water Authority along with  a number of  home owners associations, civic associations, businesses, and volunteer groups to accomplish this major 25+-mile river clean-up. During last year’s clean-up, 197 volunteers pulled 6,700 pounds of trash out of the Occoquan River and this year we hope to get more help to remove even more!

 

PWTSC needs experienced kayakers, canoeists, jon boaters, and pontoon boaters to sign up for this major on-the-water conservation effort.  Some kayaks and canoes will be available for loan provided by Penguin Paddling (at Hooes Run) and the Prince William County Parks and Recreation Department (at Lake Ridge Marina).  Please visit www.pwtsc.org for more information and to register for this event or contact Ed Dandar at efdandar@verizon.net or 703-791-6158.
