stormwater runnoff

The proposed regulation has been needed for a long time in Virginia.  The need to control down-stream runoff is very important.

Some of the negative comments from some , like the Greater Richmond Area Association for Commercial Real Estate (GRACRE), are more about more building not about improving the environment and about quality of life here in Virginia.  In addition their reference to agriculture does not reduce the need for stormwater improvementds.  Itjust highlights the need for increased regulation of agricultural runoff .
