As construction picks up in the region, many of our localities are struggling with fill dirt and inert debris dump sites popping up in rural areas. On May 29, 2019, The Piedmont Environmental Council partnered with the Northern Virginia Regional Commission and Rappahannock Rapidan Regional Commission to host a workshop on this complex issue. The agenda included speakers from PEC, NVRC, the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, and the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality.
Powerpoints from their presentations are available below:
If you have questions about this workshop, or the issues related to management of fill dirt and debris disposal in rural areas, please reach out to PEC field representative Julie Bolthouse with questions.
