"F.  The Department shall transfer $9,500,000 from the general fund the second year for Environmental Technical and Financial Assistance to the Virginia Water Quality Improvement Fund established under the Virginia Water Quality Improvement Act of 1997."

(This amendment provides $9.5 million from the general fund for point source pollution control activities under the Virginia Water Quality Improvement Act. It is the General Assembly's intent that the funds be used as "match" to encourage public wastewater treatment plants to upgrade their facilities with the latest technologies, including biological nutrient removal technology. The purpose of this funding is to reduce the amount of nutrients entering into the Chesapeake Bay watershed.)
