VACo Comments on Turbidity

As the Department of Environmental Quality moves ahead in this process, we urge the Department to consider any possible detrimental impacts that any new standards may have on stormwater permitting and compliance and on economic development.  To that end, the Virginia Association of Counties (VACo) formally requests that we be included in any future discussions on or analysis of these matters, and we ask that we be a part of the any future Regulatory Advisory Panel.

Thank You,

Chris McDonald
