Purpose of the meeting
While all meetings are open to the public, because of security concerns, please contact David Evans to notify him of your intent to attend so that you can be added to the attendance list. This is a notice for the fourth and final meeting of the Salt Tracking & Reporting Workgroup, which is tasked with developing recommendations related to best practices for salt tracking and reporting in winter weather maintenance as part of the development of the Salt Management Strategy (SaMS). A chloride TMDL has been developed for the Accotink Creek watershed located in Fairfax County. Additionally, water quality patterns throughout the Northern Virginia region show that the chloride pollution issues observed in the Accotink Creek watershed are not isolated to that watershed, but instead widespread throughout the region. Therefore, the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) in partnership with a broad coalition of stakeholders that make up the SaMS Stakeholder Advisory Committee (SAC) have begun the development of a comprehensive strategy that aims to provide recommendations for more efficient and effective use of salts during winter weather management. The purpose of this meeting is to report on follow-up items from the last meeting and to finalize the workgroup recommendations for the SaMS. The focus of discussions will be on seeking comments/refinements to a comprehensively revised, integrated example salt use and BMP tracking form designed to facilitate internal tracking to support more efficient use of winter salts. Improved internal tracking is an essential step toward the longer term goal of regional level reporting of salt use and BMP implementation for northern Virginia. The group will also discuss ideas to encourage/incentivize voluntary tracking, and potential funding sources to support salt use and BMP reporting. If you have any questions regarding the Salt Tracking and Reporting Workgroup, this meeting, or the SaMS, please contact David Evans via phone, email, or conventional mail using the information listed at the bottom of this notice. All materials related to this project will be posted on the DEQ website at: https://www.deq.virginia.gov/SaMS/MeetingMaterials.aspx. In the event of inclement weather or another unanticipated need to reschedule, this meeting will be held on Tuesday, January 14, 2020 from 1:00 – 3:30 p.m. at the Northern Virginia Regional Commission, at 3040 Williams Drive in Fairfax, Virginia.
