Fast track amendment- removal of fees for MS4 and construction activities
Action 5463
General Information
Action Summary A periodic review was recently conducted for this regulation and the result of the review was to amend the regulation to remove fees that are no longer needed. This amendment removes fees for Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) and Construction Activity permitting fees from this regulation. These fees in 9VAC25-20 are a carryover from when the stormwater program was administered by DEQ prior to the program's transfer to the Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) (in January 2005). Permit fees for MS4 and construction activities are assessed under the Virginia Stormwater Management Program (VSMP) Regulation (9VAC25-870) and are no longer needed in 9VAC25-20.
