In the 1986 budget bill, the Virginia General Assembly directed the Virginia Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, Division of Soil and Water Conservation, to conduct a review of local compliance with the provisions of the Erosion and Sediment Control Law in the Chesapeake Bay Region. A report was then to be submitted to the 1988 Session of the General Assembly identifying the financial, technical, and statutory impediments to compliance with the Law. The methodology and results of the consultant's study are summarized in this paper. In addition, recommendations presented to the 1988 session of the General Assembly, and any subsequent legislative actions taken by the General Assembly are discussed.
