Arlington County, with support from the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) Eastern Federal Lands Highway Division (EFLHD), is proposing a new multi-use trail along the east side of Arlington National Cemetery.
The purpose of the project, consistent with the Bicycle Element of Arlington County’s Master Transportation Plan, is to provide additional north-south trail connections within the Arlington County network for pedestrians and bicyclists. Members of the public are invited to participate in the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) scoping and National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA) Section 106 process. Please visit Arlington County’s website, using the following link, to review proposed project and provide comments to project point of contact by February 24, 2023.

Arlington National Cemetery's Stormwater Program
Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) Permit
Arlington National Cemetery (ANC) has a municipal separate storm sewer system permit regulating stormwater discharges through its outfalls. The Virginia Stormwater Management Act, the Virginia Stormwater Management Program (VSMP) Permit regulations and the Clean Water Act regulate these stormwater discharges as point source discharges.
Chesapeake Bay Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) Action Plan
ANC’s Chesapeake Bay TMDL Action Plan provides the means and methods that ANC has implemented, or plans to implement, to meet the pollutant of concern (total phosphorus, total nitrogen, total suspended solids) reductions required by the MS4 permit.
The MS4 permit requires small MS4s to submit annual reports to the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality. These reports document the status of compliance with permit conditions.
MS4 Program Plan
The Virginia Stormwater Management Act, the Virginia Stormwater Management Program (VSMP) permit regulations and the Clean Water Act regulate discharges from municipal separate storm sewer systems (MS4) as point source discharges. Publicly owned systems such as storm drains, pipes, ditches or swales collecting or moving water to surface waters must obtain permit coverage and develop a stormwater management program.
MS4 programs must be designed and implemented to control the discharge of pollutants from storm sewer systems to the maximum extent practicable in a manner that protects the water quality in nearby streams, rivers, wetlands and bays.
The General Permit for the Discharge of Stormwater from Small MS4s regulates stormwater discharges from MS4s, including Department of Defense facilities. The general permit requires small MS4s to develop, implement and enforce a program that includes the following “minimum control measures":
- Public education and outreach
- Public involvement and participation
- Illicit discharge detection and elimination
- Construction site and stormwater runoff control
- Post-construction stormwater management in new development and development on previously developed lands
- Pollution prevention and good housekeeping for municipal operations
