5. We suggest that the proposed regulations allow for flexibility at the local level to account for unique watershed characteristics and regional opportunities. Many localities including Henrico County, Chesterfield County, Hanover County, James City County and others have developed specific programs that make sense for their watersheds and their communities. We encourage the Board and the Department to recognize the value of these local programs and allow for the continuation of these programs.
