What are the new stormwater development criteria?
The tougher standards outlined herein include the state’s minimum requirements and those proposed by the City of Falls Church. The criteria are being implemented as part of the state-wide effort to restore water quality to the Chesapeake Bay. These values stem from scientific research on stormwater runoff and the pollution it generates in the form of phosphorus.
