Discount Retailer Goes Above Minimum Standards and is Recognized for Conservation Efforts

Stormwater regulations and local watershed are becoming more rigorous to preserve and protect the eco-systems that are so vital for a sustainable future.  In Onley, Virginia, Wal-Mart  both during construction and with its day-to-day operations implemented strategies and programs that are helping to protect the “limited and sensitive water supply” in the community.  These extraordinary actions of today will become the norm tomorrow with the implementation of the  Chesapeake Bay TMDL and pending EPA Stormwater Rule scheduled to be approved in 2012.
