City of Bethlehem 10 East Church Street Bethlehem, PA 18018 City of Bethlehem Northampton

Description: The City proposes to improve the wet weather handling capabilities of their existing wastewater treatment facility by addressing current problems associated with the digester systems and waste activated sludge thickening process. Digester system improvements include installation of new mixing and heating systems in all three primary digesters; a new energy efficient boiler; new gas piping; new storage cover; structural repairs; new sludge pumps; and associated plumbing, electrical, and instrumentation upgrades. Sludge Thickening improvements include replacement of existing thickeners with two new gravity belt thickener units; new energy efficient sludge pumps; upgraded polymer feed system; and associated HVAC, electrical, and instrumentation upgrades. The Pennsylvania Infrastructure Investment Authority, which administers the Commonwealth's State Revolving Fun, is intended to be the funding source for this project. The Department's review of the project and the information received has not identified any significant adverse environmental impact resulting from this proposal. The Department hereby categorically excludes this project from the State Environmental Review Process.

Request for Comments on the Proposed Total Maximum Daily Loads (TMDLs) Developed for the
Potato Valley Run Watershed in Snyder County Pennsylvania

 The Department of Environmental Protection will accept comments on the proposed TMDLs developed for the Potato Valley Run Watershed in Snyder County, PA. These TMDLs were established in accordance with the requirements of Section 303(d) of the Clean Water Act. The Pennsylvania Integrated Water Quality Monitoring and Assessment Report included impaired stream segments in this watershed. The listings of these waterbodies were due to use impairments caused by excessive siltation from agriculture.

 There currently are no state or federal instream numerical water quality criteria for siltation. Therefore, the Department utilized a reference watershed approach to implement the applicable narrative criteria. These proposed TMDLs set allowable loadings of sediment in the Potato Valley Run Watershed. The sediment loadings were allocated among cropland, hay/pasture land, low intensity development and stream bank categories present in the watershed. Data used in establishing these TMDLs was generated using a water quality analysis model (AVGWLF) designed by the Pennsylvania State University.

 The following table shows the estimated current sediment loadings for the watershed. Overall load reductions necessary in order to meet the TMDLs are also identified.

PERCENT REDUCTION
Sediment 1,241,600 3,402 950,872 2,605 23%

 The data and all supporting documentation used to develop the proposed TMDLs are available from the Department. The proposed TMDLs and information on the TMDL program can be viewed on the Department's website (www.dep.state.pa.us/watermanagement_apps/tmdl/). To request a copy of any of the proposed TMDLs contact:

Watershed Protection Division, Central Office
Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection
Rachel Carson State Office Building
Harrisburg, PA 17105
Phone: 717-772-1674, e-mail: ggocek@state.pa.us

 The Department will consider all comments in developing the final TMDLs, which will be submitted to EPA for approval. Written comments will be accepted at the above address and must be postmarked by 45 days after publication in the PA Bulletin. A public meeting to discuss the technical merits of the TMDLs will be held upon request.

Request for Comments on the Proposed Total Maximum Daily Loads (TMDLs) Developed for the
Silver Creek Watershed in Snyder County Pennsylvania

 The Department of Environmental Protection will accept comments on the proposed TMDLs developed for the Silver Creek Watershed in Snyder County, PA. These TMDLs were established in accordance with the requirements of Section 303(d) of the Clean Water Act. The Pennsylvania Integrated Water Quality Monitoring and Assessment Report included impaired stream segments in this watershed. The listings of these waterbodies were due to use impairments caused by excessive siltation from grazing related agriculture.

 There currently are no state or federal instream numerical water quality criteria for siltation. Therefore, the Department utilized a reference watershed approach to implement the applicable narrative criteria. These proposed TMDLs set allowable loadings of sediment in the Silver Creek Watershed. The sediment loadings were allocated among cropland, hay/pasture land, transitional land and stream bank categories present in the watershed. Data used in establishing these TMDLs was generated using a water quality analysis model (AVGWLF) designed by the Pennsylvania State University.

 The following table shows the estimated current sediment loadings for the watershed. Overall load reductions necessary in order to meet the TMDLs are also identified.
