Purpose of the meeting
This is a notice for the second meeting of the Non-Traditional Best Management Practices (BMPs) Workgroup, which is tasked with developing recommendations related to education and outreach as part of the development of the Salt Management Strategy (SaMS). A chloride TMDL has been developed for the Accotink Creek watershed located in Fairfax County. Additionally, water quality patterns throughout the Northern Virginia region show that the chloride pollution issues observed in the Accotink Creek watershed are not isolated to that watershed, but instead widespread throughout the region. Therefore, the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) in partnership with a broad coalition of stakeholders that make up the SaMS Stakeholder Advisory Committee have begun the development of a comprehensive strategy that aims to provide recommendations for more efficient and effective use of salts during winter weather management. The purpose of this meeting is to report on follow-up item from the last workgroup meeting, begin to finalize workgroup recommendations and prepare for the workgroup update at an upcoming 3rd Stakeholder Advisory Committee (SAC) Meeting. If you have any questions regarding the Non-Traditional BMPs Workgroup, this meeting, or the SaMS, please contact Sarah Sivers via phone, email, or conventional mail using the information listed at the bottom of this notice. All materials related to this project will be posted on the DEQ website at: In case of inclement weather, the alternate meeting date will be Friday, March 22, 2019 from 9:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at DEQ Northern Regional Office (13901 Crown Court, Woodbridge, VA 22193).
