Last week at the Environment Virginia conference in Lexington, several presentations by DCR staff and representatives detailed some of the stormwater regulation program changes including details regarding the Grandfather clause, implementation schedule, and permitting tools under development by DCR. There was a significant amount of information shared with attendees, and more than can be adequately addressed in a single post to this blog. Much of this information has been eagerly awaited, and it is going to be extremely important to understand how this new information can provide direction. It will be very helpful so that localities and private land owners can chart their path forward to compliance. Please email me if you’re interested to know more about the specific information shared and how you can actively plan for and manage your stormwater program.
