Susquehanna River Basin Commission Offers 3-Part Webinar Series On Groundwater Withdraw Requirements For Public Water Systems

Susquehanna River Basin Commission has scheduled a series of three webinars to assist public water system operators and managers on the Commissions groundwater withdrawal requirements.

The no-cost seminars will provide in-depth instructions and guidance on the Commission’s new Alternative Hydrogeologic Evaluation (AHE) Policy

The AHE, which recently replaced the SRBC’s Aquifer Test Plan Waiver practice, is the first step of a two-step process for submitting a groundwater renewal application to the Commission. 

Special focus will be provided on how this new streamlined, risk-based approach utilizes existing data and information to evaluate a withdrawal’s sustainability, impacts to other users, and impacts to the environment. 

The series will include three parts--

-- January 27: Part 1: Impacts to Other Users  (1:00 – 2:00 p.m.)

-- February 24: Part 2: Evaluating Sustainability and Impacts to the Environment (1:00 – 2:00 p.m.)

-- March 24: Part 3: Form Completion and Implementation using Voluntary Action Plans (1:00 – 2:30 p.m.)

The Commission recognizes the challenges facing smaller municipal water supply systems to keep abreast of current regulatory requirements, and therefore initiated the Public Water Supply Assistance Program in 2012 to aid municipal systems in meeting the Commission’s regulatory requirements.
