HJR 118/SJR 117: Commission on the Future of Virginia’s Environment

Erosion and Sediment Control and Stormwater Management Subcommittee

October 17, 2002

In its first meeting of the year, the subcommittee heard presentations on LID and Virginia Soil and Water Conservation Districts. The subcommittee also received a staff presentation on stormwater management/erosion and sediment control programs and followed up on potential recommendations that were carried over from the previous year. Issues that the subcommittee will consider at its next meeting for recommendation to the full commission include: revising erosion and sediment control laws to require performance bonds, increasing penalties for violations, enabling third party collection of damages for violations, and requiring all localities to adopt stormwater management programs. The subcommittee will also further examine the issue of LID and the potential for statewide guidelines.


The Hon. William T. Bolling
