"J. Out of the amounts appropriated for Financial Assistance for Environmental Resources Management, $1,350,000 the second year from the general fund is provided to allow the Hampton Roads Sanitation District purchase an extensometer to measure land subsidence."


(This amendment provides $1.35 million from the general fund in the second year to the Department of Environmental Quality to support the Hampton Roads Sanitation District to fund an extensometer to measure land subsidence. This is in support of the HRSD's Sustainable Water Initiative for Tomorrow (SWIFT) project, which is a program to inject treated wastewater into the subsurface to raise groundwater pressures and thus expand and make more sustainable the aquifer system.)
