Description of Proposed Guidance Document Changes
In order to reduce agriculture non-point source pollution of Virginia’s waters, the Virginia General Assembly in its 1999 session amended Chapter 22 of the Code of Virginia by adding § 62.1-229.1 which expanded the activities of the Virginia Water Facilities Revolving Fund (the Fund) to the Commonwealth’s agricultural producers (Producers) for implementation of specific agricultural best management practices (Ag BMPs). This Code section was amended in 2019 to add a grant funding option, to expand eligible applicants, and to expand eligible practices to include riparian buffers and renovation, improvement or equipping of facilities. The Department has updated the Program Guidelines to incorporate these code changes. If you have any questions on the guidelines, please contact DEQ's Lars Bolton at: (804) 698-4006.
