Amend Virginia Pollution Abatement General Permit
The Environmental Protection Agency has concluded that efforts to restore the Chesapeake Bay are losing ground. Virginia must act to meet our goals for improving the health of the Chesapeake Bay.
The Virginia Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) proposal to amend the Virginia Pollution Abatement General Permit to address runoff pollution from the storage and land application of poultry litter will reduce nitrogen and phosphorus pollution to waterways.
