|Action||Amend Parts I, II, and III of the Virginia Stormwater Management Program Permit Regulations to address water quality and quantity and local stormwater management program criteria.|
|Comment Period||Ends 8/21/2009|
At a minimum I would recommend that we do not enact the technical criteria, Part II of the regulations until such time as a more in depth economic impact analysis can be performed, the BMP Clearinghouse issues are resolved and the criteria significantly modified to ensure a balance between the health of the bay and our state’s economic future. The Board and DCR should re-convene the Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) and allow all of the stakeholders to provide input and have their concerns addressed.
