LAND RECYCLING AND ENVIRONMENTAL REMEDIATION

UNDER ACT 2, 1995

PREAMBLE 2


The following plans and reports were submitted under the Land Recycling and Environmental Remediation Standards Act (35 P. S. §§ 6026.101--6026.908).

   Provisions of Chapter 3 of the Land Recycling and Environmental Remediation Standards Act (act) require the Department of Environmental Protection (Department) to publish in the Pennsylvania Bulletin a notice of submission of plans and reports. A final report is submitted to document cleanup of a release of a regulated substance at a site to one of the act's remediation standards. A final report provides a description of the site investigation to characterize the nature and extent of contaminants in environmental media, the basis for selecting the environmental media of concern, documentation supporting the selection of residential or nonresidential exposure factors, a description of the remediation performed and summaries of sampling analytical results which demonstrate that remediation has attained the cleanup standard selected. Submission of plans and reports, other than the final report, shall also be published in the Pennsylvania Bulletin. These include the remedial investigation report, risk assessment report and cleanup plan for a Site-Specific Standard remediation. A remedial investigation report includes conclusions from the site investigation, concentration of regulated substances in environmental media; benefits of refuse of the property and, in some circumstances, a fate and transport analysis. If required, a risk assessment report describes potential adverse effects caused by the presence of regulated substances. If required, a cleanup plan evaluates the abilities of potential remedies to achieve remedy requirements.

   For further information concerning plans or reports, contact the Environmental Cleanup Program manager in the Department regional office after which the notice of receipt of plans or reports appears. If information concerning plans or reports is required in an alternative form, contact the Community Relations Coordinator at the appropriate regional office.

   The applicant proposes to construct, operate and maintain a: (1) passive treatment acid mine drainage treatment system; (2) two dams for flow diversion; (3) two road crossings and (4) two rock outfalls in Morgan Run and associated wetlands for acid mine drainage abatement. The concrete dams constructed for flow diversion shall not exceed a maximum height of 2.5-feet and width of 12.0-feet. The permittee has proposed to construct two replacement wetlands that shall result in 1.65-acres of mitigation for the Morgan Run TUFF, Morgan Run FROG, and Morgan Run No. 7 acid mine drainage treatment projects. The Morgan Run TUFF Acid Mine Drainage Treatment Project permanently impacts 01.61-acres of wetland, for which the permittee has agreed to include in the construction of a 1.65-acre replacement wetland to mitigate the 1.61-acres of impact. Construction of the 1.65-acre replacement wetland shall commence prior to the construction activities authorized by this permit. The permittee shall operate and maintain the acid mine treatment system, so that significant water quality improvement shall be achieved downstream in 2,640-feet of Morgan Run. The project is located along 1.4 stream miles south of the point where SR 2012 crosses Morgan Run.

   To construct, operate and maintain a 17-mile natural gas pipeline, a new railroad spur off of the Norfolk Southern main line and a 2-inch sanitary sewer line to support operations at a new gypsum wallboard plant. All stream impacts associated with the gas pipeline and the sanitary sewer are intended to be temporary. One permanent stream impact is associated with the railroad spur and will consist of replacement of an existing Culvert Crossing. Wetland impacts associated with this project are as follows: Natural gas pipeline impacts total 4.51 acres of forested, emergent, forested/scrub shrub and open water. These impacts are intended to be constructed in such a manner as to not create secondary impacts associated with these locations. Rail spur wetland impacts total 1.74 acres of permanent impacts and 3.33 acres of estimated indirect impacts associated with forested, scrub shrub and emergent wetland complexes. The sanitary sewer line proposes one emergent temporary wetland impact totaling 0.04 acre. This project spans a multi county, multitownship alignment and is intended to support the minimum permanent impacts to any wetland and stream impacts. The drainage basins involved with this project are as follows UNT to Sugar Run (CWF), Derr Run (CWF), Jakes Run (CWF), Little Muncy Creek (CWF), Laurel Run (CWF), West Branch of Chillisquaque Creek (WWF), Middle Branch Chillisquaque Creek (WWF), Mud Creek (WWF) and UNTs to these Streams. The following tables detail the impacts along with the location of the individual impact:

PUBLIC NOTICE

Department of Environmental Protection to Withdraw the Nutrient TMDLs for Neshaminy Creek Watershed

   Department of Environmental Protection (Department) intends to withdraw, subject to United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) approval, the established nutrient Total Maximum Daily Loads (TMDLs) for the Neshaminy Creek Watershed. The Department developed, and EPA approved, nutrient TMDLs for the Neshaminy Creek Watershed on December 9, 2003. EPA proposes to establish, by June 30, 2008, TMDLs to replace the withdrawn TMDLs. The revised TMDLs will be based on an additional scientific evaluation of the nutrient-algal growth relationship as well as additional water quality modeling evaluations.

   The Rationale for Withdrawal document can be accessed at www.dep.state.pa.us, DEP keyword: TMDL. Select Neshaminy Creek TMDL by name.

   Direct any questions about the Neshaminy Creek TMDL withdrawal to Bill Brown at (717) 783-2951 or willbrown@state.pa.us.
