The Stormwater Management Plan is designed to comply with the six minimum control measures outlined in Virginia state regulations.
Quality & Quantity
As the population of the county grows, certain federal and state criteria concerning the quality and quantity of stormwater runoff must be met. The eastern, urbanized area of Loudoun County has been included by the Environmental Protection Agency and the Commonwealth of Virginia in those areas requiring stormwater discharge permits under the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) phase II requirements. Control of the quality and quantity of the runoff is essential to the overall health of our people and our natural resources.
