Availability of Technical Guidance
[31 Pa.B. 5410]
Technical guidance documents are on DEP's website (www.dep.state.pa.us) at the Public Participation Center page. The ''July 2001 Inventory'' heading is the Governor's list of nonregulatory guidance documents. The ''Final Documents'' heading is the link to a menu of the various DEP bureaus and from there to each bureau's final technical guidance documents. The ''Draft Technical Guidance'' heading is the link to DEP's draft technical guidance documents.
DEP will continue to revise its nonregulatory documents, as necessary, throughout 2001.

Changes to Existing Technical Guidance Identification Numbers--Division of Storage Tanks
In response to Departmental reorganization approved in March 2001, the Division of Storage Tanks was transferred from the Bureau of Watershed Conservation to the Bureau of Land Recycling and Waste Management (BLRWM). As a result of this reorganization, it is necessary to transfer those technical guidance documents under the Division of Storage Tanks to the BLRWM's technical guidance document inventory. To accomplish this task, the first three digits of each document's identification number will simply be changed from ''393'' to ''257.'' The remaining 7 digits of the document's identification number do not have to be changed and will remain the same. These documents are on DEP's website (www.dep.state.pa.us) at the Public Participation Center page, see Final Technical Guidance, BLRWM.
