Purpose of the meeting
This is a notice for the second meeting of the Government Coordination Workgroup, which is tasked with providing recommendations for the Northern Virginia Salt Management Strategy (SaMS) related to government processes and operations. A chloride TMDL has been developed for the Accotink Creek watershed located in Fairfax County and the City of Fairfax. 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 discuss opportunities to use existing or new forums of Northern Virginia regional government agencies to promote implementation of the SaMS, share information, and offer mutual assistance. The potential to use consistent public messages on winter season maintenance and common level of service goals will be discussed, and the workgroup will consider, conceptually, options for future legislative policy that could promote and support SaMS implementation. If you have any questions regarding the Government Coordination Workgroup, this meeting, or the SaMS, please contact David Evans via phone, email, or conventional mail using the information listed at the bottom of this notice.
