(This amendment provides $1.5 million the first year from the general fund to map dam breach inundation zones for the dams owned by the soil and water conservation districts. This mapping will be required for the soil and wataer conservation districts to comply with proposed changes to Virginia's Impounding Structure Regulations and will assist with determining any potential hazard risks. Mapping will also provide local governments with an additional tool to use in zoning and comprehensive planning.)
