Erosion and sediment control and stormwater management. Transfers responsibility for administering the Erosion and Sediment Control Law from the Virginia Soil and Water Conservation Board to the Department of Environmental Quality, with the State Water Control Board given the authority to promulgate regulations. Similarly, the stormwater management program is transferred from the Department of Conservation and Recreation to the Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ). With the transfer of this function to DEQ, the Board of Conservation and Recreation no longer has regulatory responsibility over a state program and therefore is reclassified as an advisory board.
