Board Matter
Public Facilities Manual Amendment on Drainage Divides
April 26, 2004


Mr. Chairman, the Fairfax County Department of Public Works and Environmental Services is currently proposing an amendment to the Public Facilities Manual guidelines pertaining to drainage divides. As we all know, stormwater management is becoming an ever greater concern for Fairfax County as development continues, increasing the amount of pervious surface in our watersheds. I, for one, strongly believe that in order to preserve the quality and integrity of our natural and built environments, we need to carefully evaluate our stormwater management practices. I would thus contend that it is important for the Board of Supervisors to have the opportunity to review and comment upon changes to the Public Facilities Manual which will affect our stormwater management policies.


Therefore, Mr. Chairman, I move that the Board request County staff to submit the aforementioned proposed amendment to the Board of Supervisor's Development Review Committee for review and comment.

The Public Facilities Manual is available here.
