New regulations to control water polution from new development

As a commonwealth resident and voter, I strongly support the new regulations to control runoff and polution from new development. Poor water quality will actually diminish our growth and severely limit recreation and enjoyment of the wonderful resources currently available. The deplorable condition of the Shennandoah River is a prime example of the impact of our failure to control runoff and polution. In that case the polution may be the result of things other than new development, but the result is the same, a beautiful natural resource ruined by short-sightedness. The members of the Water Control board can be assured that the citizens of the commonwealth fully support these critical regulations and to not support them is a tragic failure of will. I pray you all find the backbone to vote for these new regulations.
