1.1. A home inspection is a non-invasive, visual examination of the accessible areas of a residential property (as delineated below), performed for a fee, which is designed to identify defects within specific systems and components defined by these Standards that are both observed and deemed material by the inspector. The scope of work may be modified by the Client and Inspector prior to the inspection process.
MS4s are publicly owned systems, such as storm drains, pipes, ditches or swales that collect or move water to surface waters. They must obtain permit coverage and develop a stormwater management program. Permits may be required to discharge stormwater from construction activities under the Virginia Stormwater Management Program (VSMP). In addition, local governments may manage their own stormwater management permit programs, which are separate from the state permit program and from local land disturbance permits. Approval for activity may also require a separate permit for erosion and sediment control. These land disturbance permits are issued by localities as part of their erosion and sediment control programs, which DEQ periodically reviews. The agency offers training for both erosion control and stormwater plan reviewers and land disturbers. 59ce067264
