Title 9. Environment
Agency 25. State Water Control Board
Chapter 910. General Permit for Use of Surficial Aquifer on the Eastern Shore

9VAC25-910-70. Reasons to deny coverage.

A. The board shall deny application for coverage under this general permit to:

1. An activity outside the Eastern Shore Groundwater Management Area.

2. An activity in an aquifer other than the surficial aquifer of the Eastern Shore Groundwater Management Area.

3. A well with a maximum depth greater than 80 feet below land surface, unless the applicant provides geophysical logs with the application that show the maximum depth of the well is constructed within the surficial aquifer of the Eastern Shore Groundwater Management Area, as determined by department review. Wells with a maximum depth less than or equal to 80 feet below land surface do not require submission of geophysical logs.

4. An activity that causes, may reasonably be expected to cause, or may contribute to causing more than minimal water level declines in the underlying confined aquifer system or degradation in water quality, stream or wetland hydrology, or other instream beneficial uses.

B. The board may require an individual permit in accordance with 9VAC25-610-95 B rather than granting coverage under this general permit.
