"4.  Out of the amounts appropriated for this item, $440,000 the second year from the general fund is provided to establish a Virginia Urban Best Management Practices Cost Share Fund in order to incentivize private investments in stormwater management facilities through the implementation of urban best management practices, including areas with large areas of impervious surface.  The department shall work with urban soil and water conservation districts and affected localities to develop program criteria and implement urban best management practices on a piloted basis in specific localities."

(This amendment provides general fund dollars for the creation of an Urban Best Management Practices Cost-Share Program to encourage private property owners to implement voluntary water quality improvements, especially those private property owners with large areas of impervious surface. The Department of Conservation and Recreation is to work with soil and water conservation districts and affected localities in determining how such a program should work and where it should be piloted.)
