Action Summary This action amends the Virginia Pollution Abatement Permit Regulation (9 VAC 25-32-10 et seq.), the Virginia Pollutant Discharge Elimination System Permit Regulation (9 VAC 25-31-10 et seq.), the Sewage Collection and Treatment Regulations (9 VAC 25-790-10 et seq.), and the Fees for Permits and Certificates regulation (9 VAC 25-20-10 et seq.), where applicable, to reflect changes to ยง62.1-44.19:3 of the Code of Virginia as amended by HB2802, S1339, S1300, and S1313 of the 2007 Acts of Assembly, and HB2197, HB2624, and HB2805 of the 2005 Acts of Assembly.

S1300 and S1311 required other regulatory changes pertaining to land application of biosolids.
