Purpose of the meeting
[Note: Seating in the pavilion meeting room will be set up to allow for social distancing. DEQ also expects meeting participants to wear a mask during the meeting.] The Steering Committee for development of the Mountain Run, Muddy Run and Lower Hazel River Implementation Plan (IP) project will meet on October 15, 2021. Water quality monitoring data collected by the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) have shown that portions of Flat Branch, Indian Run, the (lower) Hazel River, Jonas Run, Mountain Run, Mountain Run Reservoir, Muddy Run, an Unnamed Tributary to Jonas Run, and Waterford Run do not meet Virginia’s water quality standard for recreation due to exceedances of the water quality criteria for E.coli. Additionally, DEQ’s biological monitoring data have shown that portions of Jonas Run and Mountain Run do not meet Virginia’s water quality standard for aquatic life due to poor health in the benthic biological communities. The IP watersheds in total encompass a land area of over 100,000 acres, with all but 30 acres located in Culpeper County (the remainder are in Rappahannock County). This project has entailed development an IP to restore water quality in portions of the project area watersheds noted above. The purpose of the Steering Committee meeting is to provide DEQ with early feedback on the draft IP report, which will be used to refine it for presentation at a Final Public Meeting, expected to be held in January 2022. The Steering Committee meeting will include a presentation by DEQ highlighting the recommendations of the draft IP report, followed by discussion during which participants will share their feedback and advice to DEQ for completion of the report.
