Page 405, after line 22, insert:

"J. The State Water Control Board shall amend its regulation at 9VAC25-31-250.A.3. on the maximum time for a Virginia Pollution Discharge Elimination System permitted discharger to attain compliance with water quality-based limitations so as to be consistent with the time for compliance established by the United States Environmental Protection Agency section 122.47(a)(1) of Title 40, Code of Federal Regulations.  The Board shall complete this amendment by October 1, 2019.  This action shall be exempt from the procedures and requirements of Article 2 of Chapter 40 of Title 2.2, Code of Virginia."


(This amendment brings the State Water Control Board's VPDES discharge permit compliance schedule regulation into conformity with the comparable federal regulation of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency most recently revised on May 15, 2000.)
