On Saturday, April 20, 2019 from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. (rain date April 27, 2019), Prince William Trails and Streams Coalition (PWTSC), a 501(c)3 organization, is conducting its 10th 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 Potomac River Watershed Cleanup.

PWTSC is partnering with the Prince William Soil and Water Conservation District, Prince William County Parks and Recreation, Prince William County Public Works, and a number of  home owners associations, civic associations, businesses, and volunteer groups to accomplish this major 25+-mile river clean-up.

Volunteers with canoes, kayaks or jon boats are especially needed to help with the annual cleanup on the water.
