House passes rules on stormwater runoff

The House of Delegates has passed legislation that defines when local governments can grant waivers or issue grandfather clauses for development projects that will be subject to new stormwater runoff regulations.

State regulations regarding how much stormwater must be filtered and treated to protect the environment were completed last year. They take effect in May.

The bill includes about three pages of definitions and guidelines that define a framework for when a waiver can be granted or how far along projects must be in order to qualify for a grandfather clause.
The measure, which now goes to the Senate, does not change any of the regulations.
