I strongly support the stormwater regulation provisions! The benefits of cleaner water, stronger tourism, improved quality of life, and long term environmental advantages are undeniable.
Based on my exploration of the rivers and water bodies of the Piedmont region, I strongly support the passage of new stormwater regulation. These regulations are fair for developers and will appropriately regulate this vital resource for the future of this region. The increased runoff and pollution that we have seen in Virginia makes this an urgent issue. In consideration of the rate of growth of Virginia and the effect that this will have on water quantity and quality, we must act NOW!
Thank you for your time and I look forward to seeing the benefits of the passage of stormwater regulation.
