Page 404, after line 33, insert:

"3. The State Water Control Board shall amend its regulation at 9 VAC 25-31-250.A.3. on the maximum time for a Virginia Pollutant 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 of the 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 of the Code of Virginia."


(This amendment brings the State Water Control Board's Virginia Pollutant Discharge Elimination System discharge permit compliance schedule regulations into conformity with the comparable federal regulation of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency as revised in May of 2000.)
