The applications concern, but are not limited to, discharges regarding industrial, animal or sewage waste, discharges to groundwater, discharges associated with municipal separate storm sewer systems (MS4), stormwater associated with construction activities or concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFO). This notice is provided in accordance with 25 Pa. Code Chapters 91 and 92a and 40 CFR Part 122, implementing The Clean Streams Law (35 P.S. §§ 691.1—691.1001) and the Federal Clean Water Act (33 U.S.C.A. §§ 1251—1376).

Location Permit Authority Application Type or Category
Section I NPDES Renewals
Section II NPDES New or Amendment
Section III WQM Industrial, Sewage or Animal Waste; Discharge into Groundwater
Section IV NPDES MS4 Individual Permit
Section V NPDES MS4 Permit Waiver
Section VI NPDES Individual Permit Stormwater Construction
Section VII NPDES NOI for Coverage under NPDES General Permits

 For NPDES renewal applications in Section I, the Department of Environmental Protection (Department) has made a tentative determination to reissue these permits for 5 years subject to effluent limitations and monitoring and reporting requirements in their current permits, with appropriate and necessary updated requirements to reflect new and changed regulations and other requirements.

 For applications for new NPDES permits and renewal applications with major changes in Section II, as well as applications for MS4 Individual Permits and Individual Stormwater Construction Permits in Sections IV and VI, the Department, based upon preliminary reviews, has made tentative determinations of proposed effluent limitations and other terms and conditions for the permit applications. In accordance with 25 Pa. Code § 92a.32(d), the proposed discharge of stormwater associated with construction activities will be managed in accordance with the requirements of 25 Pa. Code Chapter 102. These determinations are published as proposed actions for comments prior to taking final actions.

 Unless indicated otherwise, the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region III Administrator has waived the right to review or object to proposed NPDES permit actions under the waiver provision in 40 CFR 123.24(d).

 Persons wishing to comment on NPDES applications are invited to submit statements to the contact office noted before the application within 30 days from the date of this public notice. Persons wishing to comment on WQM permit applications are invited to submit statements to the office noted before the application within 15 days from the date of this public notice. Comments received within the respective comment periods will be considered in the final determinations regarding the applications. A comment submittal should include the name, address and telephone number of the writer and a concise statement to inform the Department of the exact basis of a comment and the relevant facts upon which it is based.

 The Department will also accept requests for public hearings on applications. A public hearing may be held if the responsible office considers the public response significant. If a hearing is scheduled, a notice of the hearing will be published in the Pennsylvania Bulletin and a newspaper of general circulation within the relevant geographical area. The Department will postpone its final determination until after a public hearing is held.

 Persons with a disability who require an auxiliary aid, service, including TDD users, or other accommodations to seek additional information should contact the Department through the Pennsylvania AT&T Relay Service at (800) 654-5984.

 The copper limits contained in this permit are based on site-specific copper criteria recommended in a Determination of Copper Water Effect Ratio (WER) for West Branch Neshaminy Creek and Hatfield Township Municipal Authority (HTMA) (Tetra Tech, Inc., October 14, 2013). Effluent and stream samples were obtained in August and September, 2013, under low flow conditions in the receiving water. Whole Effluent Toxicity (WET) testing was conducted on these samples following EPA's streamlined procedure for evaluating the WER for copper. The study results yielded WERs of 6.2 (dissolved copper) and 6.0 (total recoverable copper). Applying the total recoverable WER, the site-specific water quality criteria for copper are 132.0 ul/l (acute) and 84.3 ug/l (chronic).

 Applicators are required to follow product labeling instructions of pesticides, which may include provisions to reduce application doses and notify public water suppliers in the event applications are conducted near public water supply intakes. Certain pesticides require a shutdown of the public water supply intake for 48 hours if applied within 1/2 mile from any active drinking water supply intake. Applicators are required to coordinate with the operators of such drinking water treatment plants prior to treatment to avoid any shortages. Generally, the discharges associated with the pesticide applications are not expected to affect public water supplies.

 PA DEP has made a tentative determination to renew the NPDES permit subject to the terms and conditions of the permit.
