Virginia Stormwater Management Program Draft Released


The DEQ is finalizing guidance regarding the Virginia Stormwater Management Program (VSMP) regulations and linear projects. The draft guidance is likely to provide a variance to linear development projects from VSMP requirements assuming the following conditions are met:

  1. No changes in land cover are proposed;
  2. Less than one (1) acre is disturbed at a time; and
  3. Site stabilization is provided.

The final guidance will be posted to the DEQ website, when available, and we will post an announcement when it is accessible.
