Event Description



Join the SAME DC Post as the guests of Fairfax Water to hear about the ongoing construction of the Occoquan River potable water transmission main crossing.  This project is improving the operational resiliency of several public water systems serving Northern Virginia by replacing an existing aging potable water transmission main crossing of the Occoquan River with dual 42-inch mains inside a 400-foot long tunnel beneath the river.   The tour will begin with a project overview briefing to be held on-site at the Griffith Water Treatment Plant conference room and then followed up by a project site visit.  Outdoor footwear should be worn to the event and hardhats/safety vests will be provided to all guests.  Following the tour an networking event will be held at Fairwinds Brewing Company, 7000 Newington Rd, Lorton, VA.  Additional logistics details will be provided closer to the event.
