Comment on Virginia Stormwater Management Program (VSMP) Permit Regulation?s (4VAC50-60?)
Dear esteemed leaders of Virginia's Department of Conservation and Recreation,
I am writing to urge you to reinstate public availability of SWPPP’s in Virginia's construction general permit. Removing this prevents Virginians from being able to keep corporations accountable when they pollute our waters. These corporations already control our lives too much, and water is a public resource which we can't live without. Please help preserve our freedom and access to information on the resources we depend on and
put back the provision into the permit which allows citizens to obtain SWPPP’s for construction sites.

Thank you,

Melissa McCoy
