ordinances, policies and guidelines, technical materials,
inspections, enforcement and evaluation.”


“Virginia Erosion and Sediment
Control Program,” or ‘VESCP,”

means a program approved by the Board that has been
established by a VESCP authority for the effective control of soil
erosion, sediment deposition, and non
