|Comment Period||Ends 8/21/2009|
I urge the state government to seize this opportunity to amend Virginia's stormwater regulations. I grew up in Loudoun county, and the local streams and rivers were a fundamental part of my childhood.
Now that I am older, I can more fully appreciate the value that our waterways contribute to our quality of life. The well-crafted regulations will save money and promote a rational process for development -- rather than construction projects getting certified after-the-fact. And of course, the future health of our waterways will be ensured.
These regulations are great -- keep them as they are and implement them now.
