|Action||Creation of a General Permit for Use of the Surficial Aquifer on the Eastern Shore|
|Comment Period||Ends 10/29/2021|
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.
