Through a group of technical professionals from Fairfax Water, the Upper Occoquan Sewerage Authority, the Occoquan Watershed Monitoring Laboratory, the Northern Virginia Regional Commission, and along with technical staffs of its member local governments, they have devoted their professional careers to create, build and manage a system that is unique in the United States that reclaims wastewater and produces arguably the most reliable and least expensive drinking water in the metropolitan Washington area.
The Occoquan Watershed covers 590 square miles and includes the Occoquan Reservoir, which serves as the boundary between Fairfax and Prince William counties. The reservoir is one of two major water sources for the Fairfax County Water Authority, which supplies water to over one million people in Northern Virginia.
