General Permit for use of the Surficial Aquifer on the Eastern Shore of Virginia
 

For over thirty years the Eastern Shore Groundwater Committee has advocated for the greater use of the surficial aquifer ( the Columbia ).   It is a more sustainable source of water supply than the confined Yorktown-Eastover aquifer.  The proposed General Permit will help to encourage this goal by establishing a simple and cost effective General Permitting process and reducing the regulatory burden.  Simple is always better for everybody !

As the chairman of the ESGWC, I strongly support this proposed regulation.
