As we’ve told you before, the Department of Conservation and Resources has new restrictive stormwater regulations in the pipeline. Just this past Monday, the Virginia Soil and Water Conservation Board Meeting approved them for implementation. And then suspended them.

The story is that the DCR wants a little more time for public comment, for which they set the period of Oct. 26 to Nov. 26. The board will meet again on Dec. 9. Spokespeople don’t expect any substantive changes in the rules, but the debate between consumer and business groups has been intense. The last chance comment period is likely to be, as well.
