Environmental Quality Board--Stream Redesignations; Oysterville Creek, et al.; Regulation No. 7-377

   On April 23, 2002, the Independent Regulatory Review Commission (Commission) received this proposed regulation from the Environmental Quality Board (EQB). This rulemaking amends 25 Pa. Code Chapter 93. The proposed regulation was published in the May 4, 2002, Pennsylvania Bulletin with a 45-day public comment period. During the public comment period, the EQB received a request to conduct a public hearing on the proposed redesignations of Oysterville Creek and West Branch Perkiomen Creek. As a result of this request, the EQB scheduled a public meeting and hearing August 7, 2002. In addition, the public comment period for those streams was extended to August 21, 2002. The final-form regulation was submitted to the Commission on July 24, 2003.

   This rulemaking redesignates six separate streams located in Bedford, Berks, Delaware and York Counties.

   We have determined this regulation is consistent with the statutory authority of the EQB (35 P. S. § 691.5 et seq.) and the intention of the General Assembly. Having considered all of the other criteria of the Regulatory Review Act, we find promulgation of this regulation is in the public interest.

By Order of the Commission:

   This regulation is approved.
