"9.  The Director of the Department of Environmental Quality is authorized to make a grant from the Virginia Water Quality Improvement Fund for the construction of a permitted biological nutrient removal or other nutrient removal facility for private sewage treatment plants in the Potomac-Shenandoah Basin serving residential and commercial customers, excluding capacity provided in the facility for industrial wastes generated by such customers, that previously received grant funds in an amount less than 50 percent of its eligible construction and equipment costs under the Cooperative Point Source Program.  Such grant shall cover only those costs associated with that portion of the design flow allocated to non-industrial wastes."

(This amendment authorizes DEQ to provide a grant from the Water Quality Improvement Fund to a private sewage treatment plant with a permitted biological nutrient removal capability in the Potomac-Shenandoah watershed. An eligible plant must have previously received a Cooperative Point Source Program grant in an amount less than 50 percent of allowed construction and equipment costs and the grant shall apply only to that portion of the project treating non-industrial wastes.)
