Description of Proposed Guidance Document Changes
The Virginia Water Protection (VWP) Permit and Compliance Manual (Manual) is a living document that contains information, forms, and instructions for VWP Permit Program staff regarding the review of permit applications; the issuance, modification, termination, transfer, and waiver of VWP permits; and conducting compliance for the program, per State Water Control Law (Chapter 3.1 of Ā§ 62.1 of the Code of Virginia) and VWP Permit Program Regulations (9VAC25-210; 9VAC25-660; 9VAC25-670; 9VAC25-680; and 9VAC25-690). This Manual undergoes periodic updates and revisions through a collaborative process. The purpose of this guidance is to update the Manual primarily due to Virginia statutory amendments; changes to associated federal and/or state laws and regulations; and recent decisions made regarding the processing of VWP permits. This guidance supersedes the following Guidance Memoranda, in whole or in part: DEQ Guidance Memorandum GM18-2008 Virginia Water Protection (VWP) Permit and Compliance Staff Manual (December 19, 2018); DEQ Guidance Memorandum GM09-2004 Applying Compensatory Mitigation Preferences Provided in the EPA Mitigation Rule to Virginia Water Protection Permitting (March 19, 2009); and only the VWP Permit Program portions of DEQ Guidance Memorandum GM01-2012 Siting Storm Water BMPs in Surface Waters and the Application of Temperature Standard to Impoundments (April 18, 2001). Please contact the staff person listed for additional information and/or for copies of references/forms/templates.
