Reuse and reclamation of water. Requires the State Water Control Board to promote and establish requirements for the reclamation and reuse of all waters of the Commonwealth, including stormwater and wastewater. Currently, the Board is only required to evaluate wastewater for reuse. The Board is also requested to identify policies, in consultation with the State Water Commission and the Virginia Resources Authority, that provide financial incentives for the construction of improvements allowing increased reclamation and reuse of waters. The Board will recommend the policies in a report presented to the General Assembly and the Governor no later than December 1, 2008. Read the Bill »
