Purpose of the meeting
A public meeting to evaluate the role of Soil and Water Conservation Districts (Districts) in providing effective delivery of water quality services and technical assistance. House Bill 2048 and Senate Bill 1279 of the 2013 General Assembly Session directed members of the Senate Committee on Agriculture, Conservation and Natural Resources and the House Committee on Agriculture, Chesapeake and Natural Resources; the Directors of the Departments of Environmental Quality (DEQ) and Conservation and Recreation (DCR); and the Commissioner of the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (VDACS) to convene public meetings throughout the Commonwealth. Six public meetings have been scheduled. Each meeting will include a roundtable discussion of the topics from Enactment Clause 12 of House Bill 2048 and Senate Bill 1279 including the role of soil and water conservation districts in providing effective delivery of water quality services and technical assistance; implications of the 2013 Legislation; the extent of the role the districts should play in providing technical assistance for such programs as erosion and sediment control and stormwater management; and the organizational location for district support that would provide the most effective and efficient delivery of district services. In addition, each meeting will include an opportunity for public comment.
