As a land developer in Baltimore County, I disagree with your view of the state's pending storm water regulations completely ("Storm over storm water," Jan. 26).
The single-family home subdivisions that I am building contribute minutely to the problems of the Chesapeake Bay. My projects all have stormwater facilities that catch and clean water.
You are missing the elephant in the room with us! How about all of the old projects that don't have any facilities and the runoff then dumps directly into the Chesapeake Bay? After a snowstorm have you ever looked at all of the salt that is dumped onto the public streets? Where do you think it ends up? In my projects, the salt and runoff go through stormwater management facilities to get cleaned.
The environmental engineers who have designed the new regulations don't even know if they will work. They still haven't figured out if the last set of regulations work!
