Comment on Virginia Stormwater Management Program (VSMP) Permit Regulations (4VAC50-60)

Publicly accessible Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plans (SWPPP) are vital to citizen involvement in protecting our creeks, steams, rivers, lake and bays. I strongly encourage you to to maintain your earlier decision to "require public accessibility of Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plans from construction sites upon request", and furthermore this requirement should be re-instated into the pending construction general permits.  Water is our source of life. This is a small action than can go a long water to keeping our water supplies, water access and all that depends on it clean for us, our children and future generations.
