SRBC Meets Dec. 5 To Consider Drilling Water Withdrawal Rule Changes

The Susquehanna River Basin Commission is conducting its next business meeting December 5  at 9:00 a.m., Miller Senate Office Building, President’s Conference Room East, 11 Bladen Street, Annapolis, Maryland 21401. The meeting is open to the public.
The commissioners will act on several agenda items, including 21 project applications (1 involving an into-basin diversion); a rulemaking action to clarify the water uses involved in hydrocarbon development that are subject to the consumptive use regulations, as implemented by the Approval By Rule program; a resolution urging the U.S. Congress to provide financial support to the National Streamflow Information Program; a resolution concerning delegation of authority; regulatory compliance matters with Lion Brewery, Inc., LHP Management, LLC, and Southwestern Energy Production Company; transfer of approval from Sunbury Generation LP to Hummel Station LLC; request for waiver from Future Power PA, LLC; and contracts and grants.
SRBC will also offer a presentation on recent water quality and biological characterizations the Commission has undertaken for the reservoirs on the lower Susquehanna River.
Opportunities for public comment on the rulemaking action and project applications were provided previously; however, SRBC may accept general public comments at the conclusion of the meeting.
