 The Department has taken the following actions on previously received permit applications, requests for Environmental Assessment approval and requests for Water Quality Certification under section 401 of the Federal Water Pollution Control Act (FWPCA) (33 U.S.C.A. § 1341).

 Except as otherwise noted, the Department has granted 401 Water Quality Certification certifying that the construction and operation described will comply with sections 301—303, 306 and 307 of the FWPCA (33 U.S.C.A. §§ 1311—1313, 1316 and 1317) and that the construction will not violate applicable Federal and State water quality standards.

 Persons aggrieved by an action may appeal that action to the Environmental Hearing Board (Board) under section 4 of the Environmental Hearing Board Act and 2 Pa.C.S. §§ 501—508 and 701—704. The appeal should be sent to the Environmental Hearing Board, Second Floor, Rachel Carson State Office Building, 400 Market Street, PO Box 8457, Harrisburg, PA 17105-8457, (717) 787-3483.

The appeal form and the Board's rules of practice and procedure are also available in Braille or on audiotape from the Secretary to the Board at (717) 787-3483.

 For individuals who wish to challenge an action, the appeal must reach the Board within 30 days. A lawyer is not needed to file an appeal with the Board.

Public Notice of First Amendment to Consent
Order and Agreement

Rosebud Mining Company and St. Michael
Land Company

St. Michael Abandoned Mine Drainage
Treatment Facility,
Adams Township, Cambria County

California District Office: 25 Technology Drive, Coal Center, PA 15423, 724-769-1100

 The Department of Environmental Protection, Rosebud Mining Company (''Rosebud'') and St. Michael Land Company, Inc., (''SMLC'') have entered into a First Amendment to the December 5, 2012 Consent Order and Agreement between those parties.

 On December 5, 2012, the Department, Rosebud, and SMLC entered into a Consent Order and Agreement (''2012 COA'') in which Rosebud agreed to finance, construct, and operate a treatment facility (''St. Michael Treatment Facility'') to treat, inter alia, previously untreated abandoned mine discharges from a large underground mine pool known as the Berwind Mine Pool for which neither Rosebud nor SMLC had any legal obligation to treat but which allowed Rosebud to mine additional coal reserves at Rosebud's Mine 78 in Paint Township, Cambria County.

 Since that time, Rosebud has constructed and tested the St. Michael Treatment Facility and is now operating it; commenced Active Mining Operations consistent with the provisions of the 2012 COA and Rosebud's Coal Mining Activity Permit (''CMAP'') No. 56841328; and signed the Participation Agreement and made the initial One Million Dollar ($1,000,000) payment into the Trust.

 There are additional coal reserves in the Upper Freeport coal seam at Mine 78 that could potentially be mined in the future if Rosebud applies for and the Department approves a modification, renewal or revision to CMAP No. 56841328 to authorize such mining.

 Rosebud has asked, and the Department has agreed, to modify the 2012 COA to include the Upper Freeport coal seam to ensure that the liability limitations in the 2012 COA apply to Rosebud's mining of the Upper Freeport coal seam at Mine 78.

 Copies of the full amendment are in the hands of California District Mining Office, 25 Technology Drive, California Technology Park, Coal Center, PA 15423, Phone 724-769-1100. The amendment may be reviewed by any interested party on request during normal business hours.
