Pumps Near Occoquan Dams to Cause Loud Noise During Rain
The contractor working on the dams will install sound barriers.
In Occoquan, we know that heavy rains sometimes mean flooding along the Occoquan River, as well as along Ballywhack, Furnace Branch, and Boundary Branch Creeks.
For the near future, however, heavy rains will likely also result in some increased noise from pumps the contractor working on the Occoquan dams will be forced to use. With good weather, the related work should be completed within three weeks. In the meantime, the contractor is installing sound barriers to help with the pump noise and has asked that we bear with them.
