April 20, 2011
The Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) recently noticed a comment period for the latest iteration of the proposed changes to the Virginia Stormwater Management Program Permit Regulations (4 VAC 50-60-10 through 159). The comment period ends April 27. These regulations have been in development for some time, and the current version reflects work by DCR staff and several technical and regulatory advisory committees and groups over the last few years.
The regulations will affect real estate development projects and include water quality and water quantity treatment requirements, over and above what Virginia has previously required.
Comments on the regulations can be sent to DCR until April 27, 2011, by mail, fax or e-mail:
Department of Conservation and Recreation
203 Governor Street, Suite 302
Richmond, VA 23219
