Groundwater Withdrawal Permitting for Poultry Facilities on Virginia's Eastern Shore

Draft Groundwater Withdrawal Permit Applications for Poultry Facilities on Virginia's Eastern Shore

DEQ has prepared 54 draft groundwater withdrawal permits for poultry facilities currently operating under Consent Special Orders in Accomack County, Virginia.  An informational briefing on the draft permits and the corresponding permitting process was held in Accomack County on April 30, 2019 at Nandua High School.  The Information Session included a presentation by DEQ staff on the recently concluded evaluation process for these groundwater withdrawal permit applications, the process used to review the applications and impacts to the aquifer, the types of restrictions included in a permit, and the schedule for public involvement.  Following the presentation, staff met with the attendees in a cafeteria style setting to answer specific questions pertaining to the application process, aquifer impacts, and general regulatory requirements.

The next steps in the permit process include publication of Public Notices, a Public Comment Period from May 24, 2019 through July 12, 2019, and three public hearings, scheduled for June 24 in Oak Hall, June 25 in Melfa, and June 26 in Eastville.
