Virginia Administrative Code
Title 9. Environment
Agency 25. State Water Control Board
Chapter 230. Procedural Rule No. 1 - Public and Formal Hearing Procedures

9VAC25-230-10. Purpose.

The following rules set forth the administrative procedures for informal hearings, which these rules call "public" hearings, and formal hearings. These hearings may be convened for diverse purposes, including the issuance, denial, modification or revocation of National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permits and other certificates issued by the State Water Control Board (Board) pursuant to §§ 62.1-44.15(5), 62.1-44.16, 62.1-44.17, 62.1-44.18:2 and 62.1-44.19 of the Code of Virginia. These rules do not supplant, revoke or amend any provisions of the State Water Control Law, the State Water Control Board's Regulation No. 6 (NPDES permits), the board's procedures for the issuance, modification or revocation of state no-discharge certificates (Procedural Rule No. 3, 9VAC25-210-10 et seq., also called "Rule No. 3"). Rather these provisions supplement the Law, Regulation No. 6 and Procedural Rules Nos. 2 and 3 by coordinating the requirements for administrative hearings contained therein with the general administrative hearing procedures contemplated by the Administrative Process Act [§§ 9-6.14:1 et seq. of the Code of Virginia]. These rules are adopted under § 62.1-44.15(7) of the Code of Virginia.
