Project Description: The Pennsylvania Infrastructure Investment Authority, which administers the Commonwealth's State Revolving Fund, is intended to be the funding source for this project. The Adams Township Water Authority proposes replacing old transite and asbestos water pipe lines with new 6-inch water lines in the Beautyline and Peaceful Valley Road areas of Adams Township. The Department's review of the project and the information received in the Environmental Report for the project has not identified any significant, adverse environmental impact resulting from this proposal. The Department hereby approves the Environmental Assessment.

HAZARDOUS SITES CLEAN-UP
UNDER THE ACT OF
OCTOBER 18, 1988

Public Notice of Proposed Consent Order and Agreement
RSR/Jones Chemical Site
City of Erie, Erie County

 Pursuant to Section 1113 of the Pennsylvania Hazardous Sites Cleanup Act, Act of October 18, 1988, P. L. 756, No. 108, 35 P. S. §§ 6020.101—6020.1305 (HSCA), notice is hereby provided that the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (Department) has entered into a Consent Order and Agreement (CO&A) with the Greater Erie Industrial Development Corporation (''GEIDC'') concerning their anticipated ownership and participation in the remediation, pursuant to the Land Recycling Act of a portion of the RSR/Jones Chemical Site (''Site'').

 In the past, hazardous substances were released at the Site and these substances contaminated the environment at the Site. The Department has investigated releases of hazardous substances disposed at the Site and determined further Response Actions are necessary. Under the terms of the CO&A, GEIDC will complete the construction of an asphalt cap over a former sludge disposal area that will serve as a parking area.

 The specific terms of this settlement are set forth in the CO&A between the Department and GEIDC. The Department will receive and consider comments relating to the CO&A for sixty (60) days from the date of this Public Notice. The Department has the right to withdraw its consent to the CO&A if the comments concerning the CO&A disclose facts or considerations which indicate that the CO&A is inappropriate, improper, or not in the public interest. After the public comment period, the Department's settlement with GEIDC shall be effective upon the date that the Department notifies GEIDC, in writing, that this Consent Order and Agreement is final and effective in its present form, and that the Department has filed a response to significant written comments to the CO&A, or that no such comments were received.

 Copies of the CO&A are available for inspection at the Department's Northwest Regional Office. Comments may be submitted, in writing, to Gary Mechtly, Department of Environmental Protection, Hazardous Sites Cleanup, 230 Chestnut Street, Meadville, Pa 16335. Further information may be obtained by contacting Gary Mechtly, at 814.332.6648. TDD users may contact the Department through the Pennsylvania Relay Services at 800-645-5984.

Request for Comments on the Proposed Total Maximum Daily Loads (TMDLs) Developed
for Sediment-impaired Dalmatia Creek Watershed
in Northumberland County

 The Department of Environmental Protection will accept comments on the proposed TMDLs developed for the sediment-impaired Dalmatia Creek Watershed in Northumberland 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 listed Dalmatia Creek in 2002 for impairments caused by excessive siltation from crop related, agricultural activities and associated vegetative removal. 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 within the Dalmatia Creek Watershed. The sediment loading was allocated among the land uses of cropland, hay/pasture land, transitional land, and associated stream bank 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 Scott Alexander, Water Program Specialist, Bureau of Point and Non-Point Source Management, Central Office, Department of Environmental Protection, Rachel Carson State Office Building, Harrisburg, PA 17105, 717-772-5670, salexander@pa.gov

 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 30 days after publication in the Pennsylvania Bulletin.

Request for Comments on the Proposed Total Maximum Daily Loads (TMDLs) Developed for Sediment-impaired Streams of the Spicer Brook Watershed in Bedford County

 The Department of Environmental Protection will accept comments on the proposed TMDLs developed for the sediment-impaired Spicer Brook Watershed in Bedford 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. 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 within the sediment-impaired Spicer Brook Watershed. The sediment loading was allocated among the land uses of cropland, hay/pasture land, and associated stream banks 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.
