Staunton City Engineers to Present Stormwater Regulations to Council

Posted: Updated:

Cleaning up the Chesapeake Bay watershed means more responsibility and more money from Virginians.

Thursday night, city engineers are presenting new stormwater regulations to Staunton City Council.

One puts the burden of monitoring stormwater pollution on cities and counties. Another regulation that's new to the people of Staunton, Waynesboro and parts of Augusta County deals with reducing urban runoff. City engineers estimate 3,000 man hours just to get that program running.

"The real dollar figure is coming down the road a little bit and that is the capital cost to improve water quality in our streams and rivers in the state," said James Davis, a Staunton city engineer.

City leaders will have to find a way to fund the regulations.

The regulations will be presented to council at their 6:30 p.m. meeting Thursday.
