Strong Support for Proposed 'LID' Stormwater Regulations. Please Vote in Favor!

I live near Fredericksburg , Virginia.  More ambitious LID stormwater codes than that proposed for the Commonwealth have been adopted by the Fredericksburg City Council and the Safford County Board of Supervisors, each WITH THE SUPPORT OF THE LOCAL BUILDERS ASSOCIATION.

This is the smart way to manage growth and development while economically working to protect our state's drinking waters and rivers and the Chesapeake Bay.  Absent decisive action, we can expect EPA to move aggressively on mandatory regulations that will be far more stringent and oneroous for builders.  Let's lead by example in our own state, make our own decisions.
