Letter from Supervisor Herrity

Welcome to the new Occoquan Watershed Coalition (“OWC”) website! The simplicity and improved functionality will allow you to better navigate this website. ┬áIt will become an important tool for OWC members and all those that have a stake in the Occoquan watershed.

The OWC has served us well over many years and their impact has been significant for the residents of the Springfield District and Fairfax County as a whole. They serve as the lead organization for elected officials and community leaders when it comes to matters in the watershed. The diverse knowledge base in OWC’s membership, coupled with the history and thorough study of the area and issues, allows them to be an unrivaled and respected resource on the watershed.

Protection of the Occoquan Watershed is one of my top priorities as a Supervisor. As Springfield Supervisor it has been a privilege and an honor to build relationships and work together to address issues over the last four years. I look forward to another four years of extending those relationships to meet our mutual goals and support OWC’s vision for the watershed.

Thank you for all you have done. Thank you for all you will continue to do. I look forward to continuing our work together to make the Springfield District and Fairfax County the best place to live in the country.


Pat Herrity
Springfield Supervisor
