Establishment of stormwater programs by localities. Extends the period of time that localities have to adopt a local stormwater management program. Currently, they are required to adopt a program no sooner than 12 months and no later than 18 months after state regulations have become effective. This bill would extend the time for adoption from no sooner than 15 months to no later than 21 months. The Virginia Soil and Water Conservation Board can grant an extension to the locality of an additional 12 months if the Department of Conservation and Recreation finds that such an extension is warranted. A locality can adopt a program earlier than the minimum time frame with the consent of the Board. The bill also requires that the regulation that establishes local program criteria and delegation procedures not become effective until after July 1, 2010. Read the Bill »
