(This amendment increases the amount of bond revenue for water quality improvement projects. The increased funds will be used to accelerate the mitigation and control of combined sewer overflow in Richmond and Lynchburg along the James River. These are the only two localities with combined sewer overflow systems. The actions are required by federal regulation through a Special Order of Consent with the State Water Control Board. The increased funds will significantly advance the Commonwealth's statewide water quality goals, as well as the those for the James River watershed.)
