Request for Comments on the Proposed Total Maximum Daily Loads (TMDLs) Developed for the West Branch Mahantango Creek Watershed in Snyder and Juniata Counties Pennsylvania

 The Department of Environmental Protection will accept comments on the proposed TMDLs developed for the West Branch Mahantango Creek Watershed in Snyder and Juniata Counties, 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 West Branch Mahantango Creek 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.

 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:

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.
