The aquatic life use of each of these streams is currently designated Warm Water Fishes or Trout Stocking and may be eligible for Cold Water Fishes (CWF) protection.
The Department is seeking information concerning the water quality of the waters to supplement any evaluations or assessments that have been or are being performed for potential redesignation as CWF. Persons who have technical data concerning the water quality, instream habitat or biological condition of these stream sections are encouraged to make the data available to the Department for consideration in the evaluations. These evaluations may lead to recommendations by the Department to the Environmental Quality Board for redesignation.
Data should be submitted to Mark Brickner, Water Quality Division, Bureau of Clean Water, P.O. Box 8774, Harrisburg, PA 17105-8774 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Data must be submitted by Monday, August 10, 2020. Questions concerning these evaluations can be directed to Mark Brickner at (717) 787-9637.
Persons in need of accommodations as provided for in the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 should contact Mark Brickner directly at (717) 783-9719 or through the Pennsylvania AT&T Relay Service at (800) 654-5984 (TDD users) or (800) 654-5988 (voice users) to discuss how the Department may accommodate their needs.
