During Phase I, the Stakeholder Team is called the “Executive Committee on the Occoquan Sewershed” or ECOS.
The stakeholder team will:
- Enhance understanding of the Occoquan Reservoir and its tributaries as a complex socio-ecological system, particularly regarding freshwater salinization
- Assess potential options to address freshwater salinization, consistent with technical, policy/political, economic and other issues and opportunities
- Advance a convergent, collaborative approach to addressing freshwater salinization while respecting the diverse range of interests and perspectives represented on the ECOS
