Title Applying the Freedom of Information Act Exemption of Location Information to DEQ Water Division Permit Files - Amendment No. 1
Document ID GM09-2012
Summary The Virginia Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), located at ยง 2.2-3700 et. seq. of the Code of Virginia, guarantees citizens of the Commonwealth and representatives of the media access to public records held by public bodies, public officials and public employees. This guidance describes DEQ Water Division procedures for identifying records not subject to the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) because the record reveals the location of a protected resource and is therefore not subject to FOIA pursuant to 2.2-3705.7(10) of the Virginia Code. This procedure ensures that DEQ is meeting the rights of citizens when details about the location of a protected resource are withheld from a FOIA response.
