Purpose of the meeting
This is a notice for the third meeting of the Traditional Best Management Practices Workgroup, which is tasked with developing recommendations related to best practices for salt use in winter weather maintenance 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 (SAC) 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 items from the last meeting and to work to finalize the workgroup recommendations for the SaMS. If you have any questions regarding the Traditional Best Management Practices Workgroup, this meeting, or the SaMS, please contact Will Isenberg 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: While all meetings are open to the public, because of security concerns, please contact Will Isenberg to notify him of your intent to attend so that you can be added to the attendance list.
