better storm water regulation

I urge you to support the strongest possible storm water regulations.   I used to canoe and fish Virginia rivers regularly.  But recently, with all the fish kills, I rarely visit the rivers I used to love.  One of the leading causes of poor water quality is run-off from development.  Since good storm water regulation is practical and afffordable,  allowing developers and builders to unnecessarily pollute our rivers should be considered a crime.  Please beef-up storm water regulation and protect our rivers and the Bay.
