Lake Manassas

Water from Lake Manassas (a public drinking water supply) flows into the Occoquan Reservoir (a public drinking water supply). From there, the water flows to the Potomac River and on to the Chesapeake Bay. When buffers are cleared and construction practices disrespect the land, the damages impact all these waterways and contribute to the escalating (taxpayer) costs needed to "save the Bay," not to mention our public drinking water supply.
