Comment on Virginia Stormwater Management Program (VSMP) Permit Regulation?s (4VAC50-60?)
Hello Mr. Dowling,
After working in the Environment, Safety and Occupational health field for 36 years, I feel I must write to request that the requirement for onsite availability of the SWPP not be dropped as a requirement in construction areas. 
It is important, because water quality matters to people, and is essential to health.  We cannot underestimate how significant storm water can be, and assume this requirement is not important.
Please put the provision back in the permit which allows citizens to obtain SWPPP’s for construction sites.
thank you,
