"L. Out of the amounts appropriated for this item, $200,000 the first year and $200,000 the second year from the general fund is provided to support the positions and related costs necessary to re-establish the Shoreline Erosion Advisory Service to reduce the impact of shoreline erosion on health of Virginia waters and the Chesapeake Bay."

(This amendment provides general fund dollars and positions to establish technical resources for shoreline erosion control to reduce the impacts of shoreline erosion on Virginia waters and the Chesapeake Bay, to aid in meeting the mandated nutrient and sediment reduction goals for the Bay TMDL, and to provide the citizens of the Commonwealth with unbiased shoreline erosion reduction techniques. The funding provides two full-time DCR SEAS employees where none exist now and related equipment such as cameras, GPS equipment, survey equipment, and office and travel expenses.)
