Fairfax Water


Locating a Pier or Float on the Occoquan Reservoir


Fairfax Water has two methods for locating a pier or float. Method A applies when the water surface is within 3 feet of full pool elevation or higher and Method B is used when the water surface is three feet below full pool.

Full Pool is the surface water level when the reservoir is at the maximum level of the spillway on the Occoquan dam, water above this level will flow over the spillway, below full pool level will be below the spillway. Full pool elevation will vary along the easement depending on geographic features impacting the reservoir.

Note that with Method B the pier will be located on dry land.
