DEP Invites Groups To Submit Data For Stream Standard Reviews For 3 Watersheds In 7 Counties

The Department of Environmental Protection published notice in the June 9 PA Bulletin inviting groups and individuals to submit water quality and other information to help its review of water quality standards in three watersheds--
-- Logan Spring Run in Huntingdon and Blair Counties is being evaluated as part of an NPDES permit renewal. Logan Spring Run is currently designated Warm Water Fishes, Migratory Fishes (WWF, MF);
-- Bermudian Creek in Adams County is being evaluated due to a potential inconsistency between the Fish and Boat Commission Wild Trout Waters classification and the current WWF, MF designation for portions of the basin; and
-- Fishing Creek in Clinton, Centre, Union and Lycoming Counties is being evaluated in response to a rulemaking petition submitted to the Environmental Quality Board by the Lloyd Wilson Chapter of Trout Unlimited.
Persons who have technical data concerning the water quality, instream habitat or biological condition of these stream sections are encouraged to make it available to the Department for consideration in the assessment. These assessments may lead to recommendations to the Board for redesignation.
Data should be submitted to Mark Brickner, Division of Water Quality, Bureau of Clean Water, P.O. Box 8774, Harrisburg, PA 17105-8774, or sent by email to: Data should be submitted within 30 days of this notice. Questions concerning this evaluation can be directed to Mark Brickner at 717-787-9637.
