Stormwater regs for cleaner water


I strongly support:

1. Strengthening of the stormwater regulations to improve water quality in Virginia.

2.  Adoption of the proposed development design criteria limiting runoff from developed and developing land to 0.28 pounds of phosphorus per acre.

3.  Regulations that support smart growth development strategies and do not provide disincentives for redeveloping previously developed land or high-density projects in more urban areas.

Thank you.
