REGISTER INFORMATION PAGE
Vol. 28 Iss. 14 - March 12, 2012

The Virginia Register OF REGULATIONS is an official state publication issued every other week throughout the year. Indexes are published quarterly, and are cumulative for the year. The Virginia Register has several functions. The new and amended sections of regulations, both as proposed and as finally adopted, are required by law to be published in the Virginia Register. In addition, the Virginia Register is a source of other information about state government, including petitions for rulemaking, emergency regulations, executive orders issued by the Governor, and notices of public hearings on regulations.

ADOPTION, AMENDMENT, AND REPEAL OF REGULATIONS

An agency wishing to adopt, amend, or repeal regulations must first publish in the Virginia Register a notice of intended regulatory action; a basis, purpose, substance and issues statement; an economic impact analysis prepared by the Department of Planning and Budget; the agency’s response to the economic impact analysis; a summary; a notice giving the public an opportunity to comment on the proposal; and the text of the proposed regulation.

Following publication of the proposal in the Virginia Register, the promulgating agency receives public comments for a minimum of 60 days. The Governor reviews the proposed regulation to determine if it is necessary to protect the public health, safety and welfare, and if it is clearly written and easily understandable. If the Governor chooses to comment on the proposed regulation, his comments must be transmitted to the agency and the Registrar no later than 15 days following the completion of the 60-day public comment period. The Governor’s comments, if any, will be published in the Virginia Register. Not less than 15 days following the completion of the 60-day public comment period, the agency may adopt the proposed regulation.

The Joint Commission on Administrative Rules (JCAR) or the appropriate standing committee of each house of the General Assembly may meet during the promulgation or final adoption process and file an objection with the Registrar and the promulgating agency. The objection will be published in the Virginia Register. Within 21 days after receipt by the agency of a legislative objection, the agency shall file a response with the Registrar, the objecting legislative body, and the Governor.

When final action is taken, the agency again publishes the text of the regulation as adopted, highlighting all changes made to the proposed regulation and explaining any substantial changes made since publication of the proposal. A 30-day final adoption period begins upon final publication in the Virginia Register.

The Governor may review the final regulation during this time and, if he objects, forward his objection to the Registrar and the agency. In addition to or in lieu of filing a formal objection, the Governor may suspend the effective date of a portion or all of a regulation until the end of the next regular General Assembly session by issuing a directive signed by a majority of the members of the appropriate legislative body and the Governor. The Governor’s objection or suspension of the regulation, or both, will be published in the Virginia Register. If the Governor finds that changes made to the proposed regulation have substantial impact, he may require the agency to provide an additional 30-day public comment period on the changes. Notice of the additional public comment period required by the Governor will be published in the Virginia Register.

The agency shall suspend the regulatory process for 30 days when it receives requests from 25 or more individuals to solicit additional public comment, unless the agency determines that the changes have minor or inconsequential impact.

A regulation becomes effective at the conclusion of the 30-day final adoption period, or at any other later date specified by the promulgating agency, unless (i) a legislative objection has been filed, in which event the regulation, unless withdrawn, becomes effective on the date specified, which shall be after the expiration of the 21-day objection period; (ii) the Governor exercises his authority to require the agency to provide for additional public comment, in which event the regulation, unless withdrawn, becomes effective on the date specified, which shall be after the expiration of the period for which the Governor has provided for additional public comment; (iii) the Governor and the General Assembly exercise their authority to suspend the effective date of a regulation until the end of the next regular legislative session; or (iv) the agency suspends the regulatory process, in which event the regulation, unless withdrawn, becomes effective on the date specified, which shall be after the expiration of the 30-day public comment period and no earlier than 15 days from publication of the readopted action.

A regulatory action may be withdrawn by the promulgating agency at any time before the regulation becomes final.

FAST-TRACK RULEMAKING PROCESS

Section 2.2-4012.1 of the Code of Virginia provides an exemption from certain provisions of the Administrative Process Act for agency regulations deemed by the Governor to be noncontroversial.  To use this process, Governor's concurrence is required and advance notice must be provided to certain legislative committees.  Fast-track regulations will become effective on the date noted in the regulatory action if no objections to using the process are filed in accordance with § 2.2-4012.1.

EMERGENCY REGULATIONS

Pursuant to § 2.2-4011 of the Code of Virginia, an agency, upon consultation with the Attorney General, and at the discretion of the Governor, may adopt emergency regulations that are necessitated by an emergency situation. An agency may also adopt an emergency regulation when Virginia statutory law or the appropriation act or federal law or federal regulation requires that a regulation be effective in 280 days or less from its enactment. The emergency regulation becomes operative upon its adoption and filing with the Registrar of Regulations, unless a later date is specified. Emergency regulations are limited to no more than 12 months in duration; however, may be extended for six months under certain circumstances as provided for in § 2.2-4011 D. Emergency regulations are published as soon as possible in the Register.

During the time the emergency status is in effect, the agency may proceed with the adoption of permanent regulations through the usual procedures. To begin promulgating the replacement regulation, the agency must (i) file the Notice of Intended Regulatory Action with the Registrar within 60 days of the effective date of the emergency regulation and (ii) file the proposed regulation with the Registrar within 180 days of the effective date of the emergency regulation. If the agency chooses not to adopt the regulations, the emergency status ends when the prescribed time limit expires.

STATEMENT

The foregoing constitutes a generalized statement of the procedures to be followed. For specific statutory language, it is suggested that Article 2 (§ 2.2-4006 et seq.) of Chapter 40 of Title 2.2 of the Code of Virginia be examined carefully.

NOTICES OF INTENDED REGULATORY ACTION
Vol. 28 Iss. 14 - March 12, 2012

TITLE 18. PROFESSIONAL AND OCCUPATIONAL LICENSING
Condominium Regulations
Notice of Intended Regulatory Action

Notice is hereby given in accordance with § 2.2-4007.01 of the Code of Virginia that the Common Interest Community Board intends to consider amending 18VAC48-20, Condominium Regulations. The purpose of the proposed action is to conduct a general review of the regulation. Changes are made annually to the Condominium Act by the General Assembly and in 2008 the regulatory authority was moved from the Real Estate Board to the newly created Common Interest Community Board. The regulation has not undergone substantial revision since 1988; therefore, a thorough review is necessary to ensure that the regulation complements the current Condominium Act, provides minimal burdens on regulants while still protecting the public, and reflects current procedures and policies of the Department of Professional and Occupational Regulation.

The agency intends to hold a public hearing on the proposed action after publication in the Virginia Register.

Statutory Authority: § 54.1-2349 of the Code of Virginia.

Public Comment Deadline: April 11, 2012.

Agency Contact: Trisha Henshaw, Executive Director, Common Interest Community Board, 9960 Mayland Drive, Suite 400, Richmond, VA 23233, telephone (804) 367-8510, FAX (804) 527-4298, or email cic@dpor.virginia.gov.

Preamble:

This emergency amendment clarifies that the commercial fishery possession limit for Summer Flounder is the sum of the Virginia landing limit and the North Carolina landing or trip limit.

4VAC20-620-40. Commercial vessel possession and landing limitations.

A. It shall be unlawful for any person harvesting Summer Flounder outside of Virginia's waters to do any of the following, except as described in subsections B, C, and D of this section:

1. Possess aboard any vessel in Virginia waters any amount of Summer Flounder in excess of 10% by weight of Atlantic croaker or the combined landings, on board a vessel, of black sea bass, scup, squid, scallops and Atlantic mackerel.

2. Possess aboard any vessel in Virginia waters any amount of Summer Flounder in excess of 1,500 pounds landed in combination with Atlantic croaker.

3. Fail to sell the vessel's entire harvest of all species at the point of landing.

B. From the first Monday in March through the day preceding the second Monday in November, or until it has been projected and announced that 85% of the allowable landings have been taken, it shall be unlawful for any person harvesting Summer Flounder outside of Virginia waters to do any of the following:

1. Possess aboard any vessel in Virginia waters any amount of Summer Flounder in excess of 20,000 pounds the combined total of the Virginia landing limit described in subdivision 3 of this subsection and the amount of the legal North Carolina landing or trip limit.

2. Land Summer Flounder in Virginia for commercial purposes more than twice during each consecutive 15-day period, with the first 15-day period beginning on the first Monday in March.

From January 1 through December 31 of each year, any boat or vessel issued a valid federal Summer Flounder moratorium permit and owned and operated by a legal Virginia Commercial Hook-and-Line Licensee that possesses a Restricted Summer Flounder Endorsement shall be restricted to a possession and landing limit of 200 pounds of Summer Flounder, except as described in 4VAC20-620-30 F.

E. Upon request by a marine police officer, the seafood buyer or processor shall offload and accurately determine the total weight of all Summer Flounder aboard any vessel landing Summer Flounder in Virginia.

F. Any possession limit described in this section shall be determined by the weight in pounds of Summer Flounder as customarily packed, boxed and weighed by the seafood buyer or processor. The weight of any Summer Flounder in pounds found in excess of any possession limit described in this section shall be prima facie evidence of violation of this chapter. Persons in possession of Summer Flounder aboard any vessel in excess of the possession limit shall be in violation of this chapter unless that vessel has requested and been granted safe harbor. Any buyer or processor offloading or accepting any quantity of Summer Flounder from any vessel in excess of the possession limit shall be in violation of this chapter, except as described by subsection I of this section.

G. If a person violates the possession limits described in this section, the entire amount of Summer Flounder in that person's possession shall be confiscated. Any confiscated Summer Flounder shall be considered as a removal from the appropriate commercial harvest or landings quota. Upon confiscation, the marine police officer shall inventory the confiscated Summer Flounder and, at a minimum, secure two bids for purchase of the confiscated Summer Flounder from approved and licensed seafood buyers. The confiscated fish will be sold to the highest bidder and all funds derived from such sale shall be deposited for the Commonwealth pending court resolution of the charge of violating the possession limits established by this chapter. All of the collected funds will be returned to the accused upon a finding of innocence or forfeited to the Commonwealth upon a finding of guilty.

H. It shall be unlawful for a licensed seafood buyer or federally permitted seafood buyer to fail to contact the Marine Resources Commission Operation Station prior to a vessel offloading Summer Flounder harvested outside of Virginia. The buyer shall provide to the Marine Resources Commission the name of the vessel, its captain, an estimate of the amount in pounds of Summer Flounder on board that vessel, and the anticipated or approximate offloading time. Once offloading of any vessel is complete and the weight of the landed Summer Flounder has been determined, the buyer shall contact the Marine Resources Commission Operations Station and report the vessel name and corresponding weight of Summer Flounder landed. It shall be unlawful for any person to offload from a boat or vessel for commercial purposes any Summer Flounder during the period of 9 p.m. to 7 a.m.

I. Any boat or vessel that has entered Virginia waters for safe harbor shall only offload Summer Flounder when the state that licenses that vessel requests to transfer quota to Virginia, in the amount that corresponds to that vessel's possession limit, and the commissioner agrees to accept that transfer of quota.

J. After any commercial harvest or landing quota as described in 4VAC20-620-30 has been attained and announced as such, any boat or vessel possessing Summer Flounder on board may enter Virginia waters for safe harbor but shall contact the Marine Resources Commission Operation Center in advance of such entry into Virginia waters.

K. It shall be unlawful for any person harvesting Summer Flounder outside of Virginia waters to possess aboard any vessel, in Virginia, any amount of Summer Flounder, once it has been projected and announced that 100% of the quota described in 4VAC20-620-30 A has been taken.

G. Limitations on the daily harvest and possession of horseshoe crabs for any vessel described below are as follows:

1. It shall be unlawful for any person who holds a valid unrestricted horseshoe crab endorsement license, as described in 4VAC20-900-30 D, to possess aboard any vessel or to land any number of horseshoe crabs in excess of 2,500, except that when it is projected and announced that 80% of the commercial quota is taken, it shall be unlawful for any person who meets the requirements of 4VAC20-900-30 D and holds a valid horseshoe crab endorsement license to possess aboard any vessel in Virginia any number of horseshoe crabs in excess of 1,250.

2.

Summary:

The State Corporation Commission's Division of Securities and Retail Franchising proposes substantial changes to 21VAC5-80-215, which currently exempts investment advisors to certain private funds from registration as an investment advisor under the Virginia Securities Act, § 13.1-501 et seq. of the Code of Virginia. The proposed amendments effectively repeal the stopgap provisions of the current regulation and adopt in substantial part the model regulation developed by members of the North American Securities Administrators Association, Inc. (the trade association of state securities regulators) to comply with the statutory requirements of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protections Act. Proposed 21VAC5-80-215 would generally exempt an investment advisor from state registration requirements if the advisor (i) is not subject to disqualification for registration based upon the advisor's prior disciplinary history and (ii) solely advises certain types of funds that meet the definition of a qualifying private fund under the provisions of 17 CFR 275.203(m)-1. The exemption covers advisors to venture capital funds and, in specific circumstances, advisors to funds that are eligible for exclusion from the definition of an investment company under section 3(c)(1) of the Investment Company Act of 1940. The proposed amendments to 21VAC5-80-215 also contain a grandfather clause that would allow currently exempt private fund advisors to remain exempt provided the advisor meets certain specified conditions. Private fund advisors that are registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission are not eligible for the proposed exemption. In addition, to qualify for the proposed exemption, advisors must make certain notice filings and pay a notice filing fee.

AT RICHMOND, FEBRUARY 14, 2012

COMMONWEALTH OF VIRGINIA, ex rel.

STATE CORPORATION COMMISSION

CASE NO. SEC-2012-00009

Ex Parte: In the matter of
Adopting a Revision to the Rules
Governing the Virginia Securities Act

ORDER TO TAKE NOTICE

Section 12.1-13 of the Code of Virginia provides that the State Corporation Commission ("Commission") shall have the power to promulgate rules and regulations in the enforcement and administration of all laws within its jurisdiction. Section 13.1-523 of the Virginia Securities Act ("Act"), § 13.1-501 et seq. of the Code of Virginia, provides that the Commission may issue any rules and regulations necessary or appropriate for the administration and enforcement of the Act.

The rules and regulations issued by the Commission pursuant to the Act are set forth in Title 21 of the Virginia Administrative Code. A copy also may be found at the Commission's website: www.scc.virginia.gov/case.

On September 7, 2011, the Commission adopted a new regulation, 21 VAC 5-80-215, to recognize changes in federal laws and regulations governing investment advisors adopted under the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act ("Dodd-Frank Act"). The adopted regulation addressed the regulatory gap created by the Dodd-Frank Act for certain advisors. During the interim, the Division of Securities and Retail Franchising ("Division"), working as a member in conjunction with the other member states of the North American Securities Administrators Association, has developed a regulation to complete the transition from prior law to conform to the Dodd-Frank Act.

Accordingly, the Division has submitted to the Commission proposed revisions to Chapter 80 of Title 21 of the Virginia Administrative Code entitled "Rules and Forms Governing the Virginia Securities Act" ("Rules").

Rule 21 VAC 5-80-215 will be amended to repeal the stopgap provision adopted last year in Case No. SEC-2011-00034 and adopt the new model rule exemption for investment advisors to private funds. The purpose of this proposed regulation is to provide for an exemption for certain types of investment advisors who advise private funds from the requirement to be registered under § 13.1-504 A of the Act. The advisors exempted by this rule will still be subject to the anti-fraud provisions of the Act.

The rule adopted in Case No. SEC-2011-00034 will be extensively revised.

Rule 21 VAC 5-80-215 will be amended to add the new exemption provisions. Section A, subsections 1-5 define key terms specific to this exemption. The definitions are structured such that the types of private funds covered under the rule will include funds excluded from the definition of investment company under Sections 3(c)(1) and 3(c)(7) of the Investment Company Act of 1940, along with other private funds that would satisfy the statutory requirements found in these exclusions.

Section B 1 of the proposed new rule explains that in order to claim the exemption from registration, the advisor and its affiliates must not be subject to a "bad boy" disqualification. A "bad boy" disqualification is defined in Rule 262 of SEC Regulation A, 17 C.F.R. § 230.262. In addition, Section B 2 requires that the private advisor file a report to the Commission as required by the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") for advisors to venture capital funds and private funds with less than $150 million in assets under management. Section B 3 requires that the advisor pay a notice filing fee of $250.

Section C of the proposed new rule and its subsections place additional conditions upon advisors to 3(c)(1) funds. Specifically, in order to qualify for the exemption from investment advisor registration, the 3(c)(1) fund must be comprised entirely of "qualified clients" under SEC Rule 205-3. This means that individual investors must have either $1 million in investments managed by the advisor or at least $2 million in net worth. The rule states that the value of the primary residence is not included in calculating net worth. The value of the primary residence will be an estimate of the fair market value at the time the net worth calculation is conducted. Section C also requires the advisor to deliver annual audited financial statements to investors in the fund, along with specific disclosures to those investors.

Section D of the proposed new rule notes that federal covered advisors who are registered with the SEC are not eligible for this exemption.

Section E of the proposed new rule establishes an exemption from registration for investment advisor representatives who are employed by the exempt investment advisor.

Section F of the proposed new rule requires the reports filed by the advisors to be filed with the Commission through the Investment Advisor Registration Depository ("IARD"). IARD is the registration system operated by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority that maintains the registration and regulatory records for the state regulatory jurisdictions. The report will be accompanied by the annual $250 filing fee.

Section G of the proposed new rule provides a grace period for exempt advisors to become registered if that advisor no longer qualifies for the exemption.

Section H of the proposed new rule is a grandfather provision that would allow advisors to private funds currently exempt under the Act to remain exempt provided that the advisor files the reports required under the rule, and the advisor no longer accepts new investors that do not meet the financial requirements imposed by the rule, and provides the required disclosures to investors.

The Division has recommended to the Commission that the proposed revisions should be considered for adoption with an effective date of May 1, 2012, in order to allow private fund investment advisors to make the transition or be registered once the stopgap regulation expires. The Division also has recommended to the Commission that a hearing should be held only if requested by those interested parties who specifically indicate that a hearing is necessary and the reasons therefore.

A copy of the proposed revisions may be requested by interested parties from the Division by telephone, mail, or e-mail request and also can be found at the Division's website: www.scc.virginia.gov/srf. Any comments to the proposed rules must be received by April 12, 2012.

Accordingly, IT IS ORDERED that:

(1) The proposed revisions are appended hereto and made a part of the record herein.

(2) Comments or requests for hearing on the proposed revisions must be submitted in writing to Joel H. Peck, Clerk of the Commission, c/o Document Control Center, P. O.

STATE AIR POLLUTION CONTROL BOARD

Proposed State Implementation Plan Revision

Notice of action: The Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) is announcing an opportunity for public comment on a proposed revision to the Commonwealth of Virginia State Implementation Plan (SIP). The SIP is a plan developed by the Commonwealth in order to fulfill its responsibilities under the federal Clean Air Act to attain and maintain the ambient air quality standards promulgated by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) under the Act. If adopted, the Commonwealth intends to submit the regulation or a portion thereof to the EPA as a revision to the SIP in accordance with the requirements of § 110(a) of the federal Clean Air Act.

Regulations affected: The regulation of the board affected by this action is as follows: Regulation for the Control of Motor Vehicles in Northern Virginia, 9VAC5-91 (Revision VV2).

Purpose of notice: DEQ is seeking comment on the issue of whether the regulation amendments that became effective in 1998 should be submitted as a revision to the SIP.

Public comment period: March 12, 2012, to April 11, 2012.

Public hearing: A public hearing may be conducted if a request is made in writing to the contact listed below. In order to be considered, the request must include the full name, address, and telephone number of the person requesting the hearing and be received by DEQ by the last day of the comment period. Notice of the date, time, and location of any requested public hearing will be announced in a separate notice and another 30-day comment period will be conducted.

Public comment stage: The regulation amendments were adopted by the State Air Pollution Control Board on September 11, 1997, with an effective date of January 1, 1998. Since the amendments have already been adopted, DEQ is accepting comment only on the issue cited above under "purpose of notice" and not on the content of the regulation amendments.

The major provisions of the proposal consist of the repeal of the following provisions: 9VAC5-91-40, Establishment of regulations; 9VAC5-91-60, Hearings and proceedings; 9VAC5-91-80, Variances; and 9VAC5-91-110, Procedural information and guidance. These provisions were moved from 9VAC5-91 into a new chapter 9VAC5-170, Regulation for General Administration.

Federal information: This notice is being given to satisfy the public participation requirements of federal regulations (40 CFR 51.102) and not any provision of state law. Except as noted below, the proposal will be submitted as a revision to the Commonwealth of Virginia SIP under § 110(a) of the federal Clean Air Act in accordance with 40 CFR 51.104. DEQ plans to submit all provisions of the proposal as a revision to the Commonwealth of Virginia SIP.

How to comment: DEQ accepts written comments by email, fax, and postal mail.

DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL QUALITY

Total Maximum Daily Load for Schenks Branch, Meadow Creek, Lodge Creek, and Moores Creek Watersheds

The Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) and the Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) seek written and oral comments from interested persons on the development of Total Maximum Daily Loads (TMDLs) and Implementation Plans (IPs) for the Schenks Branch, Meadow Creek, Lodge Creek, and Moores Creek watersheds in the City of Charlottesville and Albemarle County. These streams were listed on the 2006 and 2008 303(d) TMDL Priority List and Report as impaired due to violations of the state's general water quality standard (benthic) for aquatic life. The benthic impairment on Schenks Branch extends 1.138 miles from the headwaters of its tributaries to the Meadow Creek confluence. Meadow Creek is benthically impaired from where it becomes a perennial stream to its confluence with the Rivanna River (4 miles). The benthic impairment on Moores Creek extends 6.377 miles from its confluence with the Ragged Mountain Dam receiving stream downstream to its confluence with the Rivanna River. The Moores Creek watershed includes the tributary locally known as Lodge Creek, which is benthically impaired for 1.57 miles from its headwaters to the confluence with Moores Creek.

Section 303(d) of the Clean Water Act and § 62.1-44.19:7 C of the Code of Virginia require DEQ to develop TMDLs for pollutants responsible for each impaired water contained in Virginia's § 303(d) TMDL Priority List and Report. Section 62.1-44.19:7 C of the Code of Virginia requires the development of an Implementation Plan (IP) for approved TMDLs. The IP should provide measurable goals and the date of expected achievement of water quality objectives. The IP should also include the corrective actions needed and their associated costs, benefits, and environmental impacts.

The first public meeting on the development of these TMDLs and IPs will be held on Thursday, March 15, 2012, 6 p.m. at CitySpace on Charlottesville's Downtown Mall, 100 5th Street NE, Charlottesville, VA 22902-5230.

The public comment period for the first public meeting will end on April 16, 2012. Written comments should include the name, address, and telephone number of the person submitting the comments and should be sent to Tara Sieber, Department of Environmental Quality, 4411 Early Road, P.O. Box 3000, Harrisonburg, VA 22801, telephone (540) 574-7870, FAX (540) 574-7878, or email tara.sieber@deq.virginia.gov.

Total Maximum Daily Loads and Implementation Plans for Long Meadow Run and Turley Creek

The Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) and the Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) seek written and oral comments from interested persons on the development of Total Maximum Daily Loads (TMDLs) and Implementation Plans (IPs) for Long Meadow Run and Turley Creek in Rockingham County. These streams were listed in 2002 as impaired due to violations of the state's general water quality standard (benthic) for aquatic life. The aquatic life impairment on Long Meadow Run extends from its headwaters to the confluence with the North Fork Shenandoah River, which is a total of 8.53 miles. The Turley Creek aquatic life impairment extends a total of 4.01 miles from its headwaters to the confluence with the North Fork Shenandoah River.

Section 303(d) of the Clean Water Act and § 62.1-44.19:7 C of the Code of Virginia require DEQ to develop TMDLs for pollutants responsible for each impaired water contained in Virginia's § 303(d) TMDL Priority List and Report. Section 62.1-44.19:7 C of the Code of Virginia requires the development of an Implementation Plan (IP) for approved TMDLs. The IP should provide measurable goals and the date of expected achievement of water quality objectives. The IP should also include the corrective actions needed and their associated costs, benefits, and environmental impacts.

The second public meeting on the development of these TMDLs and IPs will be held on Wednesday, March 21, 2012, 7 p.m. at J. Frank Hillyard Middle School, 226 Hawks Hill Drive, Broadway, VA 22815. The TMDL document will be available on the DEQ website the day of the meeting for public comment and review: https://www.deq.virginia.gov/TMDLDataSearch/DraftReports.jspx.

The public comment period for the second public meeting will end on April 23, 2012. Written comments should include the name, address, and telephone number of the person submitting the comments and should be sent to Tara Sieber, Department of Environmental Quality, 4411 Early Road, P.O. Box 3000, Harrisonburg, VA 22801, telephone (540) 574-7870, FAX (540) 574-7878, or email tara.sieber@deq.virginia.gov.

Notice of Bacteria TMDL Modification of James River and Tributaries - Lower Piedmont Region in Goochland, Fluvanna, Louisa, Powhatan, and Cumberland Counties, Virginia

The Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) seeks public comment from interested persons on 4 proposed minor modifications of the total maximum daily loads (TMDLs) developed for impaired segment: Beaverdam Creek.

A total maximum daily load (TMDL) of E. coli was developed to address the bacterial impairments in the James River and Tributaries - Lower Piedmont Region in Goochland, Fluvanna, Louisa, Powhatan, and Cumberland Counties. This TMDL was approved by the Environmental Protection Agency on June 11, 2008. The report is available at http://www.deq.virginia.gov/ tmdl/apptmdls/jamesrvr/jmsgrp2.pdf. DEQ issued a notice of modification for minor modifications from November 7, 2011, to December 7, 2011. No comments were received. In addition to the three modifications included previously for the Beaverdam Creek TMDL, DEQ is proposing one additional modification and seeks written comments from interested persons.

In November 2011, three modifications were proposed for the Beaverdam Creek TMDL. First, DEQ proposed to remove facility Huguenot Academy (VA0063037), which should not have been given a waste load allocation (WLA) in the Beaverdam Creek TMDL because it discharges to the Fine Creek drainage. DEQ suggested the WLA of 6.96E+09 (cfu/yr) E. coli, based on a maximum discharge of 0.004 million gallons per day (MGD), be added to the "Future Growth" load for the Beaverdam Creek TMDL. Second, DEQ proposed to remove facility James River Correctional Center (VA0020681), which no longer discharges to Beaverdam Creek. DEQ suggested the WLA of 3.76E+11 (cfu/yr) E. coli, based on a maximum discharge of 0.216 MGD, be added to the "Future Growth" load for Beaverdam Creek. Third, DEQ proposed to add a new WLA, Oilville Waste Water Treatment Plant (WWTP) (VA0092428), which is a municipal facility with a maximum discharge of 0.3 MGD, and suggested allocation by subtracting from the "Future Growth" load of Beaverdam Creek. The WLA to be assigned to this facility based on design flow at the standard is equal to 5.23E+11 (cfu/yr) E. coli.

The new proposed modification is related to the original Future Growth calculation, which was five times the WLA of dischargers (James River Correctional Center (VA0020681), VDOT Interstate 64 Goochland Rest Area (VA0023108), Huguenot Academy (VA0063037), and James River Correctional Center (VA0006149)), and equal to 2.61E+12 (cfu/yr) E. coli. This Future Growth value is 32% of the TMDL, which is relatively excessive when compared to the majority of Virginia TMDLs, whose Future Growth values are usually <10% of the TMDL. Out of the four original facilities given WLAs, only the VDOT facility remains and a new facility will begin discharging (Oilville WWTP #VA0092428). DEQ proposes to revise the Future Growth to a new value of two times the WLA of the new Oilville WWTP, equal to 1.05E+12 (cfu/yr) E. coli. The revised Future Growth would be equal to 12.8% of the TMDL, which DEQ believes is a more reasonable number of future growth reserve as a portion of the overall TMDL. The difference in old and new Future Growth will be moved to the Load Allocation (LA) (nonpoint source category). The total revised WLA will be equal to 5.57E+11 and the total revised LA will be equal to 6.54E+12, (cfu/yr) E. coli, respectively. The proposed changes for the Beaverdam Creek TMDL are equal to <1.0%.

The proposed WLA changes above will neither cause nor contribute to the nonattainment of the James River basin.

The public comment period for these modifications will end on April 16, 2012. Please send comments to Margaret Smigo, Department of Environmental Quality, Piedmont Regional Office, 4969-A Cox Road, Glen Allen, VA 23060, by email at margaret.smigo@deq.virginia.gov, or FAX at (804) 527-5106. Following the comment period, a modification letter and any comments received will be sent to EPA for final approval.

Bacteria TMDL Modification of James River and Tributaries - Hopewell to Westover in Chesterfield, Charles City, Prince George, and Hopewell, Virginia

The Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) would like to inform the public of a retraction of previously proposed minor modifications of the total maximum daily load (TMDL) developed for the James River (tidal) segment.

A total maximum daily load of E. coli was developed to address the bacterial impairments in the James River and Tributaries - Hopewell to Westover in Chesterfield, Charles City, Prince George, and Hopewell, Virginia. This TMDL was approved by the Environmental Protection Agency on July 10, 2008. A modification to remove an unnecessary WLA and add to future growth in James River segment was approved on July 7, 2009. The report and previous modification are available by searching the approved TMDL reports page at https://www.deq.virginia.gov/TMDLDataSearch/DraftReports.jspx. A public comment period was held for proposed modifications from October 10, 2011, to November 10, 2011. One comment was received in support of DEQ's proposed actions. DEQ would like to provide notification regarding the redacted changes and seeks comments from interested persons.

DEQ previously proposed eight modifications for the James River (tidal) TMDL. DEQ proposes to now retract the proposed modification to assign a waste load allocation (WLA) for existing facility Rock Tenn (formerly known as Smurfit Stone Container Corporation, permit #VA0004642), an industrial facility with a maximum discharge of 0.288 MGD (at outfall 002). A limit for E. coli in the permit was considered because a sample submitted by the facility as part of their permit reissuance indicated the presence of bacteria.  The sample, taken from an outfall receiving car-rinse water, is believed to be caused by wildlife. Bacteria runoff from wildlife sources at the site is already modeled in the Load Allocation (LA) (nonpoint source category). For this reason, DEQ believes the proposed WLA for the facility based on the design flow at the standard of 5.01E+11 colony forming units per year (cfu/yr) E. coli is unnecessary. Therefore, the loading will not be allocated to the facility or removed from Future Growth.

Current DEQ guidance on TMDL modifications instructs regions to track the addition or subtraction of Single Family Home General Permits (SFHGPs), rather than modifying the TMDL for each change, providing the additions or subtractions are in compliance with the TMDL and future growth loading. Therefore, the remaining proposed modifications included in the previous notice will not be pursued with EPA at this time. These modifications included the addition of five new WLAs for domestic dischargers VAG404083 (UT Walls Run), VAG404132 (Parish Hill Creek), VAG404199 (James River), VAG404270 (UT James River), and VAG404271 (UT James River), which are single family home facilities, each with a design flow each of 0.001 million gallons per day (MGD). The WLA that was to be assigned to each facility based on design flow at the standard is equal to 1.75E+09 (cfu/yr) E. coli. For modifications 7 and 8, DEQ proposed to remove the WLA assigned to two single family home permits, VAG404131 and VAG404215, which are no longer in operation. Their respective WLAs of 1.75E+09 (cfu/yr) E.coli (each) were to be added to "Future Growth" load. The combined revised "Future Growth" load in the James River (tidal) TMDL as a result of these modifications was to be equal to 7.66E+14 (cfu/yr) E. coli. 

DEQ also proposed two modifications to Powell Creek in the previous public notice. The first was to add a domestic discharger (VAG404083), which is a SFHGP with a design flow of 0.001 million gallons per day (MGD), and assign a waste load allocation (WLA) of 1.75E+09 colony forming units per year (cfu/yr) for E. coli in the Powell Creek TMDL. The second modification is to remove domestic discharger VAG404131, which is a single family home facility with a WLA of 1.75E+09 (cfu/yr) E.coli that is no longer in operation.  The addition of one discharger and subtraction of another would equal a net change of 0% of the Powell Creek TMDL. Again, DEQ proposes to track these SFHGP changes rather than formally modify the TMDL at this time.

In summary, no formal modification will be pursued for the James River and Tributaries - Hopewell to Westover TMDL at this time. The addition and subtraction of SFHGPs will be tracked internally at DEQ to ensure compliance with the TMDL.

The public comment period for the retraction will end on April 16, 2012. Please send comments to Margaret Smigo, Department of Environmental Quality, Piedmont Regional Office, 4969-A Cox Road, Glen Allen, VA 23060, telephone (804)527-5124, FAX (804) 527-5106, or email margaret.smigo@deq.virginia.gov.

Construction Management Procedures as Adopted by the Secretary of Administration

In accordance with the provision of § 2.2-4306 of the Code of Virginia, the Secretary of Administration hereby adopts the following procedures for the procurement of construction management (CM) contracts, as defined in § 2.2-4301 of the Code of Virginia, which shall be followed by all departments, agencies, and institutions of the Commonwealth (each of which is hereinafter referred to as the "agency"). These procedures shall be effective March 1, 2012.

A. LEGISLATIVE AUTHORITY: Under the authority of § 2.2-4306 of the Code of Virginia, the Commonwealth may enter into a contract with a construction manager (CM) in accordance with these procedures and § 2.2-1502 of the Code of Virginia. Under the authority of § 2.2-4303 D 1 of the Code of Virginia, an agency is authorized to use competitive negotiations to procure CM contracts when it determines in advance, and sets forth in writing, that competitive sealed bidding is either not practicable or not fiscally advantageous to the public, which writing shall document the basis for this determination.

B. CRITERIA FOR USE OF CM: CM contracts may be approved for use on projects where 1) fast tracking of construction is needed to meet agency program requirements, or 2) value engineering and/or constructability analyses concurrent with design are required.

The use of CM shall be limited to projects with a construction value that is in excess of $10,000,000. With proper justification for small complex projects, the Director of the Division of Engineering and Buildings (director) may grant a waiver of this requirement.

C. PROCEDURE FOR APPROVAL TO USE CM: Prior to taking any further action, the agency shall request authority in writing and receive approval from the director to use a CM contract.

The request shall justify and substantiate that a CM contract meets the criteria found in paragraph B. The request must also include the stipulation that the CM contract will be initiated no later than the schematic phase of design. The request shall also include a written justification that competitive sealed bidding is not practical and/or fiscally advantageous.

Approval of exceptions to this policy may be granted by the director, who is the approving authority for requests to use CM procedures.

D. CM SELECTION PROCEDURES:

1. The agency shall appoint an Evaluation Committee (committee) which shall consist of at least three members from the agency, including a registered design professional, if possible. The committee shall include a licensed professional engineer or architect provided by the Division of Engineering and Buildings. The agency shall contact the section in the Office of the Attorney General (OAG) representing the Division of Engineering and Buildings (currently the Real Estate and Land Use Section) to determine whether a representative from the OAG should be involved.

2. The basis of the award of the contract shall be in accordance with § 2.2-4301 (3) (b) of the Code of Virginia and the criteria for the award shall be submitted to the director, in advance, for approval. Cost shall be a critical component of the selection criteria.

3. Selection of qualified offerors (Step I): On projects approved for CM, the agency shall conduct a prequalification process as follows to determine which offerors are qualified to submit proposals.

a) The agency shall post a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) in accordance with the current standards for the posting of public bids in the Code of Virginia and in accordance with the latest edition of the Construction and Professional Services Manual.

b) The committee shall evaluate each responding firm's submittals and any other relevant information and shall determine those deemed qualified with respect to the criteria established for the project.

c) An offeror may be denied prequalification only as specified under § 2.2-4317 of the Code of Virginia.

d) At least 30 days prior to the date established for the submission of proposals, the agency shall advise in writing each offeror that sought prequalification whether that offeror has been prequalified. In the event that an offeror is denied prequalification, the written notification to such offeror shall state the reasons for such denial of prequalification and the factual basis of such reasons.

e) In addition to the procedures described above for prequalifying firms for individual CM projects, the director may approve requests to prequalify construction managers for particular types of construction projects in accordance with § 2.2-4317 of the Code of Virginia. Firms qualified under that approval may compete for projects of the same type for which they qualified unless the director determines that further prequalification for a particular project is desirable.

4. Selection of a construction manager (Step II):

a) The committee will send a Request for Proposal (RFP) to each of the prequalified firms and request submission of formal proposals from them.

b) The committee will evaluate and rank the proposals and conduct negotiations with two or more offerors submitting the best proposals. Should the agency determine, in writing and at its sole discretion, that only one offeror is fully qualified or that one offeror is clearly more highly qualified than the others under consideration, a contract may be negotiated with that offeror after approval of the director.

c) The committee shall make its recommendation on the selection of a construction manager to the agency head based on its evaluations and negotiations. The contract shall be awarded to the offeror who is fully qualified, has submitted an acceptable proposal, and has been determined to provide the best value in response to the RFP. When the terms and conditions for multiple awards are so provided in the RFP, awards may be made to more than one offeror.

d) The agency shall notify the Division of Engineering and Buildings of its selection of the construction manager and shall request authority to award a contract by submission of form DGS-30-058, CO-8, Approval to Award Construction Contract, and supporting documents to the Bureau of Capital Outlay Management via email to coforms@dgs.virginia.gov.

e) Award of the CM contract shall be made to the offeror selected.

f) The agency will notify all offerors who submitted proposals which offeror was selected for the project.

E. REQUIRED CONSTRUCTION MANAGEMENT CONTRACT TERMS: Any guaranteed maximum price construction management contract entered into by any agency will contain provisions requiring that (1) not more than 10% of the construction work (measured by cost of the work) will be performed by the CM with its own forces and (2) that the remaining 90% of the construction work will be performed by subcontractors of the CM which the CM must procure by publicly advertised, competitive sealed bidding. In extraordinary circumstances the director may grant a waiver of these contractual requirements in whole or in part.

F. The guaranteed maximum price shall be established at the completion of working drawings unless a waiver has been granted to this requirement by the director.

G. An agency may request from the director approval to perform a one-step solicitation for its project. If adequate justification is provided, the director may approve the request.

H. Any institution of higher education with authority for capital projects pursuant to the Restructured Higher Education Financial and Administrative Operations Act may utilize these procedures or such other procedures as they may have adopted pursuant to any signed memorandum of agreement.

I. The Code of Virginia requires other public bodies planning to use CM to adopt guidelines consistent with the above procedures. A key difference is that steps requiring the approval or involvement of the Director of the Division of Engineering and Buildings will instead seek the approval or involvement of the appropriate authority as directed by the governing body of the public body. Before implementing CM, such public body must have the required professional staff and meet the material requirements of § 2.2-4308 of the Code of Virginia. It should also be noted that certain procedures incorporated above are mandated by the Code of Virginia for state agencies. Other public bodies may not be required to adopt identical standards, but their procedures are required to be consistent with these.

Design-Build Procedures as Adopted by the Secretary of Administration

In accordance with the provisions of § 2.2-4306 of the Code of Virginia, the Secretary of Administration hereby adopts the following procedures for the procurement of design-build (D/B) contracts, as defined in § 2.2-4301 of the Code of Virginia, which shall be followed by all departments, agencies, and institutions of the Commonwealth (each of which is hereinafter referred to as an "agency"). These procedures shall be effective March 1, 2012.

A. LEGISLATIVE AUTHORITY: Under the authority of § 2.2-4306 of the Code of Virginia, the Commonwealth may contract to secure D/B projects on a fixed price basis in accordance with these procedures and the regulations adopted pursuant to § 2.2-1502 of the Code of Virginia. Under the authority of § 2.2-4303 D 1 of the Code of Virginia, an agency is authorized to use competitive negotiations to procure D/B contracts when it determines in advance, and sets forth in writing, that competitive sealed bidding is either not practicable or not fiscally advantageous to the public, which writing shall document the basis for this determination.

B. CRITERIA FOR USE OF D/B CONTRACTS: D/B contracts are intended to minimize the project risk for an owner and to reduce the delivery schedule by overlapping the design phase and construction phase of a project.

C. PROCEDURE FOR APPROVAL TO USE D/B: Prior to taking any action, the agency shall request authority, in writing and receive approval from the Director of the Division of Engineering and Buildings (director), to use a D/B contract.

The request shall justify and substantiate that D/B is more advantageous than a competitive sealed bid construction contract with a general contractor and shall indicate how the Commonwealth will benefit from using D/B. The request shall also include a written justification that competitive sealed bidding is not practical and/or fiscally advantageous.

Approval of exceptions to this policy may be granted by the director, who is the approving authority for requests to use D/B procedures.

D. D/B SELECTION PROCEDURES: On projects approved for D/B, procurement of the contract shall be a two-step competitive negotiation process. The following procedures shall be used in selecting a design-builder and awarding a contract:

1. The agency shall appoint an Evaluation Committee ("committee") which shall consist of at least three members from the agency, including a registered design professional, if possible. The committee shall include a registered design professional provided by the Division of Engineering and Buildings. The agency shall contact the section in the Office of the Attorney General (OAG) representing the Division of Engineering and Buildings (currently the Real Estate and Land Use Section) to determine whether a representative from the OAG should be involved.

2. The basis of the award of the contract shall be in accordance with § 2.2-4301 (3) (b) of the Code of Virginia and the criteria for the award shall be submitted to the director, in advance, for approval. Cost shall be a critical component of the selection criteria.

3. Selection of qualified offerors (Step I):

On projects approved for D/B, the agency shall conduct a prequalification process as follows to determine which offerors are qualified to submit proposals.

a) The agency shall prepare a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) containing the agency's facility requirements, building and site criteria, site and survey data (if available), the criteria to be used to evaluate submittals and other relevant information, including any unique capabilities or qualifications that will be required of the contractor.

b) The RFQ shall be posted in accordance with the current standards for the posting of public bids in the Code of Virginia and in accordance with the latest edition of the Construction and Professional Services Manual.

c) The committee shall evaluate each responding firm's submittals and any other relevant information and shall determine those deemed qualified with respect to the criteria established for the project.

d) An offeror may be denied prequalification only as specified under § 2.2-4317 of the Code of Virginia.

e) At least 30 days prior to the date established for the submission of proposals, the agency shall advise in writing each offeror that sought prequalification whether that offeror has been prequalified. In the event that an offeror is denied prequalification, the written notification to such offeror shall state the reasons for such denial of prequalification and the factual basis of such reasons.

4. Selection of design-build contractor (Step II):

a) The agency will send a Request for Proposal (RFP) to at least two*, and up to five, of the D/B offerors deemed most suitable for the project, from those selected by the committee. Sealed technical proposals as described in the RFP will be submitted to the committee. Separately-sealed cost proposals will be submitted to the agency's Virginia construction contracting officer (VCCO), and shall be secured by and kept sealed until evaluation of the technical proposals and the design development negotiations are completed.

* Should the agency determine, in writing and in its sole discretion, that only one offeror is fully qualified or that one offeror is clearly more highly qualified than the others under consideration, a contract may be negotiated with that offeror after approval of the director.

b) The committee will evaluate the technical proposals based on the criteria contained in the RFP. It will inform each D/B offeror of any adjustments necessary to make its technical proposal fully comply with the requirements of the RFP. In addition, the agency may require that offerors make design adjustments necessary to incorporate project improvements and/or additional detailed information identified by the committee during design development.

c) Based on the revisions made to the technical proposals, the committee and an offeror may negotiate additive and deductive amendments to the offeror's cost proposals. In addition, an offeror may submit cost deductions from its original sealed cost proposal that are not based upon revisions to the technical proposals. When the terms and conditions for multiple awards are so provided in the RFP, awards may be made to more than one offeror.

d) The committee shall make its recommendation on the selection of a design-builder to the agency head based on its evaluations and negotiations. The contract shall be awarded to the offeror who is fully qualified, has submitted an acceptable proposal and has been determined provide the best value in response to the RFP.

e) The agency shall notify the Division of Engineering and Buildings of its selection of the design-builder and shall request authority to award a contract by submission of form DGS-30-058, CO-8, Approval to Award Construction Contract and supporting documents, to the Bureau of Capital Outlay Management via email to coforms@dgs.virginia.gov.

f) Award of the D/B contract shall be made to the offeror selected.

g) The agency will notify all offerors who submitted proposals which offeror was selected for the project.

E. Any institution of higher education with authority for capital projects pursuant to the Restructured Higher Education Financial and Administrative Operations Act, may utilize these procedures or such other procedures as they may have adopted pursuant to any signed memorandum of agreement.

F. The Code of Virginia requires other public bodies planning to use D/B to adopt guidelines consistent with the above procedures. A key difference is that steps requiring the approval or involvement of the Director of the Division of Engineering and Buildings will instead seek the approval or involvement of the appropriate authority, as directed by the governing body of the public body.
