Summary as passed:
Transporting wastes on state waters. Eliminates the stacking limitation for containers on barges and the prohibition on transporting waste on the Rappahannock, James, and York Rivers. This bill broadens the Board’s authority to establish a waste barging fee to fund not only administration and enforcement costs, but to also fund activities for abating pollution caused by barging of waste, for improving water quality, or for other waste related purposes. This bill exempts from regulation recyclable construction demolition debris being transported on state water directly to a processing facility.
