Periodic Review of this Chapter
Includes a Small Business Impact Review
Date Filed: 4/1/2001
Pursuant to Executive Order Number Twenty-five (1998), the Department of Environmental Quality on behalf of the State Water Control Board, will review the Water Withdrawal Reporting regulation (9 VAC 25-200-10 et seq.). The purpose of the review is to determine whether the regulations should be terminated, amended or retained in their current form. The review of the regulations will be guided by the principles listed in Executive Order Number Twenty-five (1998).
The purpose of these regulations is to protect public health and/or welfare with the least possible costs and intrusiveness to the citizens and businesses of the Commonwealth; to document the amount of water withdrawn from surface and ground water resources by requiring withdrawers to annually report their withdrawals; to provide data necessary to efficiently plan for water supply needs of the citizens by identifying areas where water withdrawals can cause significant impact on the local water supply sources; and to serve the water supply information needs of other state, local and federal agencies.
The department and the board are seeking public comment on the review of any issue relating to these regulations including whether (i) the regulations are effective in achieving their goals; (ii) the regulations are essential to protect the health, safety of welfare of citizens or for the economical performance of important governmental functions; (iii) there are less burdensome and less intrusive alternatives for achieving the purpose of the regulations; and (iv) the regulations are clearly written and easily understandable by the affected persons.
Comments on the above are welcome and will be accepted until April 16, 2001. Comments should be sent to Erlinda Patron, Department of Environmental Quality, Post Office Box 10009, 629 East Main Street, Richmond, Virginia 23240-0009, (804) 698-4047, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
