Summary as introduced:
Stormwater management; civil penalty.  Requires localities located in Tidewater and those that are classified as an MS4 under the federal Clean Water Act to adopt a local stormwater management program in accordance with a schedule established by the Virginia Soil and Water Conservation Board. The locality is to adopt its stormwater program between 12 and 18 months after the effective date of the Board's regulation that establishes local program criteria and delegation procedures. Under current law these localities are to adopt a program by July 1, 2006. Any locality that isn't in Tidewater or classified as an MS4 can choose to administer its own program (seek delegation) within six months following the effective date of the regulation. The bill also increases the maximum fine for violation of the provisions of the stormwater law from a civil penalty of $25,000 to $32,500.
