[29 Pa.B. 578]
The Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR), Bureau of Recreation and Conservation has approved the: ''Monongahela River Conservation Plan'' (prepared for the river segment from the Pennsylvania/West Virginia border to the Glenwood Bridge near the Pittsburgh corporate border) and is placing this segment of the Monongahela River, and the portion of its tributaries studied in the plan, on the Pennsylvania Rivers Conservation Registry (Registry).
On December 17, 1998, the Steel Industry Corporation submitted the Monongahela River Conservation Plan and other required information to gain Registry status.
After review of the Plan and the other information, the DCNR has determined that PA Rivers Conservation Program requirements have been satisfied and places the following on the Registry:
* A segment of the Monongahela River extending from the Pennsylvania/West Virginia border (river mile 90) to the Glenwood Bridge, near the Pittsburgh corporate boundary (river mile 6). This river segment is approximately 84 miles long.
* A corridor extending from 1 mile east from the river's east bank to 1 mile west of its west bank or to the ridge of the nearest slope.
* The portion of all tributary streams within the river corridor.
This action becomes effective January 30, 1999. Projects identified in the Monongahela River Plan become eligible for implementation, development or acquisition grant funding through the PA Rivers Conservation Program.
A copy of the Final Plan is available for review at the Steel Industry Heritage Corporation, 338 East Ninth Avenue, 1st Floor, Homestead, PA 15120, (412) 464-4020 and Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, Rachel Carson State Office Building, 400 Market Street, 6th Floor, Harrisburg, PA 17105-8475, (717) 787-2316.
Maps and supporting data are on file at the Steel Industry Heritage Corporation Office.
