Susquehanna River Basin Commission Sets Feb. 6 Hearing, March 13 Business Meeting

The Susquehanna River Basin Commission is scheduled to hold a February 6  hearing on 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.
SRBC will also take testimony on proposed water withdrawal projects to be considered at the next business meeting of the Commission on March 13.  Click Here for more.
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 hearing will be held at the SRBC Headquarters, 4423 N. Front Street in Harrisburg starting at 2:30 p.m.
The deadline for comments on the proposed policy is February 17.   Comments may be 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
Next Business Meeting
The next business meeting of the SRBC is on March 13 at the SRBC Headquarters, 4423 N. Front Street in Harrisburg starting at 9:00 a.m.  Click Here for more as it becomes available.
