ENVIRONMENTAL QUALITY BOARD
Acceptance of Rulemaking Petitions for Study
[27 Pa.B. 5666]
At the October 21, 1997, meeting of the Environmental Quality Board (EQB), the EQB accepted four rulemaking petitions for further study under 25 Pa. Code Chapter 23 (EQB Policy for Processing Petitions).
Two of the petitions request changes to stream designations. The first, submitted by West Penn Township in Schuylkill County, requests that Lizard Creek be redesignated from Trout Stocking to High Quality Waters. The second, from Fry's Run Residents' Group, asks that Frya Run (locally known as Fry's Run) in Northampton County be upgraded from High Quality--Cold Water Fishes to Exceptional Value--Cold Water Fishes.
The other two petitions were submitted by Advanced Environmental Recycling Corporation and request inclusion of fluorescent and mercury lamps and mercury devices as universal wastes under the Department of Environmental Protection's hazardous waste regulations in Chapter 266.
The Department is currently reviewing these petitions and will forward its report evaluating each one to the EQB. Any changes that are recommended to the existing regulations will be processed as proposed rulemakings with opportunity for public comment.
Copies of the petitions are available from the Environmental Quality Board, P. O. Box 8477, Harrisburg, PA 17105-8477, phone (717) 787-4526, e-mail to RegComments@a1.dep.state.pa.us.
