The Department of Environmental Protection invites public comments on a proposed Total Maximum Daily Load Plan for Stony Run in Derry Township, Westmoreland County (PA Bulletin, page 358).
The proposed TMDL sets allowable loadings within the specifically impaired stream segments of the Stony Run watershed. The loading was allocated among the land uses of cropland, hay/pasture, and associated stream banks present in the watershed.
Data used in these TMDLs was generated using a water quality analysis model (MapShed—GWLF) designed by the Penn State University.
Comments are due January 20 and should be sent to: Scott Alexander, Water Program Specialist, Bureau of Clean Water, Central Office, Department of Environmental Protection, Rachel Carson State Office Building, Harrisburg, PA 17105, 717-772-5670 or send email to: firstname.lastname@example.org.A copy of the proposed TMDL is available on DEP’s TMDL webpage.
