Description

Update of the Probably Maximum Precipitation level. Directs the Department of Conservation and Recreation to utilize a storm-based approach in order to derive the Probable Maximum Precipitation (PMP) level for locations in the Commonwealth. By updating the PMP, it is anticipated that dam owners will have significant cost savings in spillway construction and remediation efforts. The bill contains a contingency clause indicating that it will not take effect unless funding is available to carry out the purpose of the legislation. The bill also allows owners of impoundment structures regulated under Virginia's Impounding Structure Regulations (4VAC50-20) to apply for a provisional license from the Department of Conservation and Recreation that shall allow impoundment structures to continue to function with no upgrades until the storm-based analysis has been completed.
