Those persons who commented during the public hearing or public comment period and attend the State Water Control Board meeting may pool their minutes to allow for a single presentation to the Board that does not exceed the time limitation of 3 minutes times the number of persons pooling minutes, or 15 minutes, whichever is less. The State Water Control Board hearing is focused on regulatory decision making for the Section 401 Clean Water Act certification. We are recruiting and organizing experts on water resources to speak for longer than 3 minutes.
We ask people to sign up to help provide additional time for water resource experts to speak. You are volunteering to attend the Board Hearing at the Trinity Family Life Center in Richmond, VA and sign up for a time slot at the Hearing. Then you would be assigned to hand off your time slot ticket to an expert. We will contact you with information about the expert that you are assigned for your time slot.
