In order to protect or improve water quality and prevent the pollution of state waters, the Virginia General Assembly amended Chapter 22 of the Code of Virginia by adding §62.1-229.5 which expands the activities of the Virginia Clean Water Revolving Loan Fund. This addition allows the State Water Control Board to authorize low interest loans from the Fund for the purpose of establishing living shorelines.  Legislation authorized the Board to develop guidelines for the administration of living shorelines loans.  The draft guidelines are now available for public review and comment at
