Making a Difference: FOTO’s 2006 Spring Cleanup of the Occoquan Watershed PRINCE WILLIAM COUNTY, VA: On Saturday April 1, 2006 the Friends of the Occoquan conducted their Spring Cleanup of the Occoquan Watershed. Over 170 volunteers combed the banks of the OccoquanRiver picking up trash and other debris. Collectively, 150 bags of trash, 20 tires, a toilet and various other articles were retrieved and properly disposed. This is very significant since the Occoquan Reservoir is a major source of drinking water here in Northern Virginia. There were four major sites for the cleanup: the Town of Occoquan, Lake Ridge Marina, FountainHeadRegionalPark and the Bull Run Marina. Other organizations that participated in this successful event were the Bull Run Rotary, Godwin Middle School, South County Secondary School, Osborne Park High School, Woodbridge High School and JROTC, Prince William Soil & Water Conservation District, the Boy & Girl Scouts of America, and the Town of Occoquan. Other partners in this event included the Fairfax Water Authority, Fairfax Clean Council, Prince William Clean Council, Occoquan Watershed and the Commonwealth of Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation.
