The Virginia Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) has proposed revision and reissuance of three General Virginia Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (VPDES) permits for the State Water Control Board (SWCB) to consider via the posted agenda for the September 20, 2018 meeting. The three general permits to be reissued are:

  1. General VPDES Permit for Nonmetallic Mineral Mining (9VAC25-190)
  2. General VPDES Permit for Discharges of Stormwater Associated with Industrial Activity (9VAC25-151)
  3. General VPDES Permit for Discharges of Stormwater from Construction Activities (9VAC25-880)

All three of these general permits will have public comment periods and public hearings concurrently in late November.
