On November 20, 2012, the Environmental Quality Board accepted a rulemaking petition for study under 25 Pa. Code Chapter 23 (relating to Environmental Quality Board policy for processing petitions—statement of policy). The petition, submitted by the Duquesne University Center for Environmental Research and Education, requests the amendment of 25 Pa Code § 93.9w (relating to Drainage List W) to redesignate the Little Sewickley Creek in Allegheny County from High Quality—Trout Stocking Fishes (HQ—TSF) to Exceptional Value designation (EV).
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) is required to publish a notice of intent to assess candidate waters. The Department's assessment notice for this rulemaking petition will appear in a future issue of the Pennsylvania Bulletin.
The previously-referenced petition is available to the public by contacting the Environmental Quality Board, P. O. Box 8477, Harrisburg, PA 17105-8477, (717) 787-4526. The petition is also accessible on the Department's web site at http://www.portal.state.pa.us/portal/server. pt/community/environmental_quality_board/14005/eqb_ meeting_schedule_2012/1055511 (see November 20, 2012, meeting).
