SPECIAL NOTICE

Water Quality Certification under Section 401 of the Federal Clean Water Act for the Extended Power Uprate (EPU) for Exelon Generation Company, LLC (Exelon) Peach Bottom Atomic Power Station (PBAPS); DEP File No. EA 67-024; NRC Doc. ID- NRC-2013-0232

 On July 23, 2014 the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania (Commonwealth) Department of Environmental Protection (Department, DEP or PADEP), issued Section 401 Water Quality Certification to Exelon for the PBAPS EPU project. The PADEP certifies that the construction, operation and maintenance of the EPU complies with the applicable provisions of sections 301—303, 306, 307 and 316 of the Federal Clean Water Act (33 U.S.C.A. §§ 1311—1313, 1316, 1317 and 1326) and appropriate requirements of state law. The Department further certifies that the construction, operation and maintenance of the EPU complies with Commonwealth applicable water quality standards and that the construction, operation and maintenance of the EPU does not violate applicable Commonwealth water quality standards provided that the construction, operation and maintenance of the EPU complies with the conditions of this certification, including the criteria and conditions of the following conditions and permits:

 1. Discharge Permit—PBAPS shall obtain and comply with a PADEP National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit for the discharge of pollutants pursuant to Pennsylvania's Clean Streams Law (35 P. S. §§ 691.1—691.1001) and all applicable implementing regulations (25 Pa. Code Chapter 92a).

 2. Erosion and Sediment Control Permit—PBAPS shall obtain and comply with a PADEP's NPDES Permit for Stormwater Discharges Associated with Construction Activity pursuant to Pennsylvania's Clean Streams Law and Storm Water Management Act (32 P. S. §§ 680.1—680.17) and all applicable implementing regulations (25 Pa. Code Chapter 102) for any earth disturbance activities that require said permit.

 3. Water Obstruction and Encroachment Permits—PBAPS shall obtain and comply with a PADEP Chapter 105 Water Obstruction and Encroachment Permit or Dam Permit for the construction, operation and maintenance of all dams, water obstructions or encroachments associated with the project pursuant to Pennsylvania's Clean Streams Law (35 P. S. §§ 691.1—691.1001), Dam Safety and Encroachments Act (32 P. S. §§ 673.1—693.27), and Flood Plain Management Act (32 P. S. §§ 679.101—679.601.) and all applicable implementing regulations (25 Pa. Code Chapter 105).

 4. Susquehanna River Basis Commission—PBAPS shall implement the Consumptive Water Use Mitigation Plan as approved and conditioned by the Susquehanna River Basin Commission including any future amendments to that plan.

 5. Habitat Improvement Projects

 a. Commencing on the first March 1 after completion of the EPU of Unit 2, and by March 1 of each year thereafter, PBAPS shall provide a total ONE HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS ($100,000.00) annually in compensatory mitigation to the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission (PFBC), or to such other conservation district, resource agency or 501(c)(3) organization as directed by the PADEP, for the implementation of habitat/sediment improvement projects. This will include stream improvement projects, agricultural pasture and barnyard best management practices, and small dam removal projects.

 b. This annual compensatory mitigation shall be by corporate check, or the like, made payable to the PFBC in the amount of ONE HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS ($100,000.00) for habitat/sediment improvement projects in Lancaster or York Counties or to such other entities as the PADEP shall direct. PBAPS and PADEP shall receive from PFBC an annual accounting of projects implemented and fund expenditures. The funds shall be deposited by the PFBC into a special non-lapsing interest bearing account established and to be used only for the HIP Projects required by this Water Quality Certification (''PBAPS HIP Funds''). Such payments shall be made for the duration of the operation of PBAPS as an electric generation facility, unless otherwise modified and approved in writing by PADEP in accordance with paragraph 5.d., below.

 c. PADEP shall ensure that each project proposed by the PFBC shall be submitted to the DEP South-central Regional Office Waterways and Wetlands Program Manager, or the successor position, for approval. No single project shall receive more than $75,000.00 in compensatory mitigation funding from the PBAPS HIP Fund. Funding priority shall be given for projects that include stream forested buffers of at least 50 feet in width and wetland creation projects. Project funding shall not include any indirect administrative costs and, except where specifically authorized by the DEP, shall not include direct administrative costs. In no case shall direct administrative costs be greater than 10% of the project funding. At PBAPS's option, and subject to land owner approval, for each project signage shall be displayed acknowledging PBAPS's funding of the habitat improvement.

 d. Exelon may request that the PADEP revise the compensatory mitigation in response to actions or activities by Exelon that reduce the degree of impingement and/or entrainment at the PBAPS.

 6. Water Quality Monitoring—PADEP retains the right to specify additional studies or monitoring to ensure that the receiving water quality is not adversely impacted by any operational and construction process that may be employed by PBAPS.

 7. Operation—For the EPU under this certification, PBAPS shall at all times properly operate and maintain the PBAPS facilities and systems of treatment and control (and related appurtenances) which are installed to achieve compliance with the terms and conditions of this Certification and all required permits.
