Occoquan River Communities (ORC) is a not-for-
profit, grass roots organization, whose mission is to
create a preferred destination along the Occoquan
River and to foster responsible development,
promotion, and stewardship of the Occoquan

Through our members -- residents, businesses, civic
and merchant associations, developers, and
governments – ORC will:
  • Promote the area as a preferred destination
    for shopping, dining, working, living, and
  • Coordinate events and disseminate
    information associated with the Occoquan
  • Pursue river transportation linkages among the
    communities on the Occoquan River
  • Promote river-related education and
  • Carry out other mutually beneficial projects

ORC is not a political advocacy group.
