Acceptance of Rulemaking Petitions for Study
[32 Pa.B. 2828]
On May 22, 2002, the Environmental Quality Board accepted two rulemaking petitions for study under 25 Pa. Code Chapter 23 (relating to Environmental Quality Board policy for processing petitions--statement of policy).
One of the petitions was submitted by North Pocono C.A.R.E. and requests that a portion of the Lehigh River (source to Tobyhanna Creek), which borders Lackawanna, Luzerne, Monroe and Wayne Counties, be redesignated from High Quality-Cold Water Fishes (CWF) to Exceptional Value waters.
The second petition was submitted by the York Water Company and requests that a segment of the East Branch Codorus Creek (including Lakes Redman and Williams) in York County be redesignated from CWF to Warm Water Fishes.
Under 25 Pa. Code § 93.4d(a) (relating to processing of petitions, evaluations and assessments to change a designated use), the Department of Environmental Protection (Department) publishes a notice of intent to assess candidate waters before performing survey work. The Department's assessment notice for the Lehigh River and East Branch Codorus Creek also appears in this issue of the Pennsylvania Bulletin.
The petitions are available from the Environmental Quality Board, P. O. Box 8477, Harrisburg, PA 17105-8477, (717) 787-4526 and on the Department's website at www.dep.state.pa.us, directLINK ''EQB'' (May 22, 2002, meeting).
