If you heard this whole story, it was full of whining, including from the reporter, about how expensive the federal regulations were for the county. I thought it was a half-assed job of reporting by Ms. Lewis. Never once was there mention of why we have the regulations, like to protect our neighbors downstream from flooding and pollution in the rivers and bay we depend on for a large part of our economy. Does the reporter know that Virginia leads in bay states in sediment pollution? Storm water runoff regulations control this. It sounded familiarly like tea party whining and I can really not believe we need to spend $100 million to come into compliance.

They should have put the CHS students to work creating the bioswale.

Gee, why would VA lead in Bay state sediment pollution? Duh. Could it be that Virginia has the largest coastline and the largest bay state rivers that flow into the bay. This is just another example of Big Brother in D.C. enacting legislation that adversely impacts local communities without any care what that impact will be. It is nice that CHS has this bioswale, hope they have teachers to teach the kids there when this 100 million is removed from the budget at gunpoint. Everyone complains about the teachers wanting to keep their jobs. How about complaining about this nonsense.
