|The focus of the proposed action is amending and reissuing the VPDES general permit for wastewater and stormwater discharges from nonmetallic mineral mines. The current permit expires on June 30, 2019 and needs to be reissued so that nonmetallic mineral mines with point source discharges of wastewater and stormwater to surface waters can continue to have general permit coverage. The proposed action also will update the general permit as necessary to ensure it remains current, clear and effective, and will continue to protect water quality from discharges associated with this industry. In addition, a periodic/ small business impact review of this regulation will be conducted as part of this regulatory action. Please see the Agency Background Document located at www.townhall.virginia.gov for the specific details on the conduct of the review.
