 SRBC Announces Proposed Policy – Guidance For The Preparation Of A Metering Plan & A Groundwater Elevation Monitoring Plan For Water Withdrawals, Consumptive Uses, And Diversions

HARRISBURG, Pa. – The Susquehanna River Basin Commission has released a proposed policy to provide guidance and assistance to project sponsors in meeting the existing requirements for metering or monitoring of withdrawals, consumptive uses, or diversions of water. The document also offers assistance with how to prepare a groundwater elevation monitoring plan, which is a long-standing requirement for groundwater withdrawal projects. This guidance document is designed to help streamline a project sponsor’s metering, monitoring, or groundwater elevation monitoring plan so that plans are concise, current, and useable by both the project sponsor and Commission staff. The policy does not introduce any new requirements of project sponsors or require meters be installed, but rather offers suggested plan structure and content details that simplifies preparation of metering and monitoring plans. The Commission believes that application of this guidance will reduce the length, cost and complexity of these project sponsor prepared plans. The Commission’s goal with this policy is to serve the regulated community and continue to best manage the water resources of the Basin in an effective and efficient manner.

The Commission has scheduled a public hearing on the proposed policy to be held on February 06, 2020 at 2:30pm, in Harrisburg, PA at the Commission Headquarters; 4423 N Front Street, Harrisburg, PA 17110-1788.

Comments may be submitted on the Commission’s Public Comment web page, mailed to: Jason E. Oyler, Esq., General Counsel, Susquehanna River Basin Commission, 4423 N Front Street, Harrisburg, PA 17110-1788, or submitted by email to regcomments@srbc.net. The deadline to submit comments specific to the proposed policy is February 17, 2020.
