Stormwater Capital Improvement Plan

Chesapeake Bay Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) (2010)

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) established the Chesapeake Bay Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) with the express purpose of restoring water quality in the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries by identifying the required reduction of pollution loads of nitrogen, phosphorus and sediment reaching the Bay. This permit allows for the implementation of the agreement between the Commonwealth and EPA. This agreement provided MS4 permittees a phased approach, over three five-year permit cycles, in order to meet requirements of the Chesapeake Bay TMDL conditions of the permit.

Chesapeake Bay TMDL Stormwater Capital Improvement Projects (2013)

We contracted with ARCADIS Inc. to provide information on cost estimates for recommended stormwater treatment strategies in order to assist Chesterfield County in planning for future capital costs and the identification of potential stormwater projects.

Municipal Separate Storm Sewer (MS4) (2014)

The Virginia Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) reissued the county’s Municipal Separate Storm Sewer (MS4) permit #VA0088609 on December 17, 2014. The purpose of the permit is to control and manage stormwater and reduce the pollutants discharged from the MS4 to local waters.

Projects (FY2014)

County staff initiated the financial planning in an effort to address the costs associated with the future requirements of the stormwater permit and water quality improvements. We also initiated the construction process for three projects:

  • Regional Stormwater Facility - LTC 20/25
  • Mid-Lothian Mines Park Stream Restoration
  • Wren Nest Stream Restoration

These projects are funded, in part, by the DEQ’s Stormwater Local Assistance Fund and will assist the county in complying with the requirements of the Chesapeake Bay TMDL conditions.

Projects (FY2015)

The Chesapeake Bay TMDL compliance plan listed funding for two additional projects:

  • James River High School BMP (Best Management Practice) Retrofits
  • Proctors Creek Outfall Retrofits

Projects (FY2016)

The Chesapeake Bay TMDL compliance plan listed two additional projects:

  • Pocoshock Creek Stream Restoration
  • County Safety Complex BMP Retrofits

Projects (FY2017)

The Falling Creek Reservoir Restoration will become the primary focus for achieving compliance with the TMDL mandate.

  • FY2017 - Preliminary design and engineering
  • FY2018 - Land acquisition
  • FY2020 - Physical restoration of the reservoir
