Stream Assessment Notifications

Under 25 Pa. Code 93.4d(a) Processing of petitions, evaluations and assessments to change a designated use (related to public notice of receipt of evaluation, or assessments of water, for High Quality (HQ) or Exceptional Value (EV) Waters redesignation) the Department of Environmental Protection hereby gives notice that an evaluation will be conducted on all or portions of the streams listed below to determine the proper Aquatic Life Use or Special Protection designations in this commonwealth's Water Quality Standards. This notice does not imply a HQ or EV designation, but this assessment may lead to a recommendation to the Environmental Quality Board (EQB) for redesignation.

To enhance public awareness of these activities, the Department is announcing an additional eNOTICE subscription category that includes stream evaluation notifications.

Currently eNOTICE includes subscription category types for:

  1. DEP permit applications,
  2. DEP Land Recycling Act 2 Notices, and
  3. DEP eComment Open Comment Periods

The Department encourages you to visit the eNOTICE website and consider taking advantage of the subscription categories available through eNOTICE to stay informed and to take advantage of notification and comment opportunities.
