Stormwater; failed best management practice. Directs the State Water Control Board to adopt regulations that (i) define a failed best management practice (Failed BMP), (ii) establish criteria for determining whether a particular installed BMP qualifies as a Failed BMP, and (iii) direct the Department of Environmental Quality, at the request of the locality, to assume, by contract with the locality, the responsibility for enforcing the operation and maintenance obligations of the owner of a Failed BMP. The bill defines a BMP for purposes of the Stormwater Management Act ( 62.1-44.15:24 et seq.) as a structural practice, nonstructural practice, or other management practice used to prevent or reduce nutrient loads associated with stormwater from reaching surface waters or the adverse effects thereof.
