James River watershed; timeline for compliance w/reg. of certain combined sewer overflow outfalls.
James River watershed; timeline for compliance with regulations of certain combined sewer overflow outfalls. Advances the timeline from 2035 to 2030 for work on construction related to any consent special order issued by the State Water Control Board (the Board) for certain combined sewer overflow (CSO) systems east of Charlottesville that discharge into the James River. The bill requires annual reporting about the impact of CSO system funding on ratepayers, particularly economically disadvantaged ratepayers. The bill also requires the Board to extend the compliance deadline if it determines that the CSO system operator has not secured grant funding in an amount sufficient to meet the deadline without an adverse impact on ratepayers, particularly economically disadvantaged ratepayers.
