[48 Pa.B. 6635]
[Saturday, October 13, 2018]

 On September 28, 2018, the Pittsburgh Water and Sewer Authority (PWSA) filed its Compliance Plan including its Long-Term Infrastructure Improvement Plan (LTIIP) in accordance with the requirements of the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission's (Commission) March 15, 2018, Final Implementation Order (FIO) at the previously-referenced Dockets.

 Regarding the PWSA LTIIP, the Commission will employ the procedures developed for LTIIPs filed under 66 Pa.C.S. § 1352 (relating to long-term infrastructure improvement plan). See Implementation of Act 11 of 2012, FIO, Doc. No. M-2012-2293611 (entered August 2, 2012). The LTIIP will be docketed separately at Doc. Nos. P-2018-3005037 (water) and P-2018-3005039 (wastewater). The Commission will apply its LTIIP procedures to the PWSA filing as it would any regulated public utility. Nevertheless, the Commission will consider consolidating the Compliance Plan and LTIIP proceedings upon request by petition.

 Regarding the PWSA Compliance Plan, no later than 45 days after this Pennsylvania Bulletin publication, the Commission will, by means of secretarial letter, assign the filings to the Office of Administrative Law Judge (OALJ) for the resolution of any factual matters that PWSA or interested parties may seek to develop. The Commission will attach to that Secretarial Letter an initial report authored by Commission technical staff consisting of directed questions or issue areas to be addressed by PWSA and interested parties. Stakeholders that wish to file comments prior to assignment to OALJ may do so no later than 20 days after this Pennsylvania Bulletin publication. However, comments so filed will not be included in the evidentiary record developed by OALJ.

 The OALJ will submit a recommended decision on the issues raised by PWSA or the parties no later than 8 months from the date on which the matter is assigned to OALJ. Parties may submit exceptions within 20 days and reply exceptions no later than 15 days thereafter. The Commission will thereafter issue appropriate orders on the filings no later than November 30, 2019.

 The PWSA Compliance Plan and LTIIP, and documents filed in support, are available for inspection and copying at the Office of the Secretary between 8 a.m. and 4:30p.m., Monday through Friday, and are available electronically at the Commission's web site at and at the applicant's business address. Contact persons for this proceeding are Daniel Searfoorce, Bureau of Technical Utility Services, at (717) 783-6159 and Shaun Sparks, Law Bureau, at (717) 787-3464.
