Clean Water State Revolving Fund; Federal FY 2004 and 2005 Project Priority List

[35 Pa.B. 4509]

   The Pennsylvania Infrastructure Investment Authority (PENNVEST) and the Department of Environmental Protection (Department) have amended the combined Federal Fiscal Year (FY) 2004/2005 Clean Water State Revolving Fund (CWSRF) Project Priority List (List) of municipal sewage construction projects.

   The FY 2004/2005 List was prepared in conformance with the requirements of Title II and Title VI of the Clean Water Act and Federal guidance and was previously approved by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The projects included on the List have a project priority rating established under the Department's EPA approved Chapter 103 project priority rating system. The Clean Water Act stipulates that States must maintain a Project Priority List of municipal sewage projects from which to develop the annual CWSRF Intended Use Plan (IUP) list of projects to be funded.

   The projects added to the List will not replace any project currently on the approved FY 2004/2005 List. Projects were placed in the appropriate ranking slot in relation to other rated and ranked projects on the List. The rank order standing of projects on the List does not dictate the order in which projects are chosen for funding in the CWSRF program. A project may be selected from any numerical rank position on the List for funding. A project's readiness to proceed and the reasonable availability of alternative sources of funds have a bearing on project selection for funding in the program.

   Some projects added to the FY 2004/2005 List are expected to proceed to construction in the near future, and others are being added as potential projects for future construction loan consideration. The projects expected to be ready for loan funding in the near future have submitted applications for funding and may be placed on an IUP to: (1) replace projects that have not proceeded timely toward initiation of project construction; and/or (2) to fill funding gaps that have developed as a result of cost savings. Projects removed from an IUP will remain on the List and be considered for CWSRF loan funds in the future.

   Interested persons are invited to express their views on the priority rating or ranking of projects on the amended FY 2004/2005 List. Persons wishing to offer comments should submit them in writing to the Infrastructure Grant Administration Section, Division of Technical and Financial Assistance, Bureau of Water Standards and Facility Regulation, 10th Floor, Rachel Carson State Office Building, P. O. Box 8466, Harrisburg, PA 17105-8466, (717) 787-6744,

   Persons in need of accommodations as provided for in the Americans With Disabilities Act of 1990 should contact Tony Maisano as noted previously or through the Pennsylvania AT&T Relay Service at (800) 654-5984 (TDD) to discuss how the Department may accommodate their needs.
