Water Pollution Control Revolving Fund Projects; Federal FY 1997 Intended Use Plan

[26 Pa.B. 4701]

   The Pennsylvania Infrastructure Investment Authority (PIIA) and the Department of Environmental Protection have prepared the Federal fiscal year 1997 Intended Use Plan (IUP) list of municipal sewerage projects to be considered for a construction loan from funds Pennsylvania expects to receive from fiscal year 1997 Federal appropriation Acts to capitalize the Water Pollution Control Revolving Fund (WPCRF) program.

   The projects to be considered for a loan from the WPCRF must meet the Federal requirements for funding in accordance with Title II and Title VI of the Water Quality Act. Accordingly, the projects included in the IUP are rated under Pennsylvania's approved project priority rating system and are expected to meet the requirements applicable for the use of the WPCRF loan funds. Projects listed on the FY 1997 IUP list are on Pennsylvania's approved FY 96/97 Project Priority List and have or are expected to proceed to construction in the near future. Any project removed from an IUP is maintained on the Project Priority List unless otherwise completed.

   The FY 1997 IUP has 18 municipal sewage construction projects listed with a total dollar value of approximately $ 59.7 million. The WPCRF will be capitalized with approximately $51.3 million of Federal FY 1997 funds from the Environmental Protection Agency and approximately $10.5 million of State funds. Some $2.1 million will be set aside for program administration costs. After public review and assessment of comments received, the Final FY 1997 IUP will be completed, and potentially, it may include other projects from the Project Priority List.

   A project must appear on the PIIA approved IUP before it can receive a loan from the WPCRF. The IUP was developed in accordance with the ranking criteria listed in section 10(b) of Act No. 1988-16. These ranking criteria differ somewhat from the Chapter 103 project priority rating system, as does the methodology used to evaluate projects. In addition, a project's readiness to proceed and the reasonable availability of alternative funds also have a bearing on project selection for the IUP. Consequently, the rank ordered list of projects on the Project Priority List does not dictate the order in which they will be chosen for inclusion in the IUP.

   Federal guidance and regulations on development of the Intended Use Plan direct that the list be subject to public comment and review before being submitted to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

   Interested persons may submit written comments to the Department regarding this IUP or the priority rating or ranking of projects on the IUP. Persons wishing to offer comments should mail them to the Administrative Services Section, Division of Municipal Planning and Finance, Bureau of Water Quality Management, 10th Floor, Rachel Carson State Office Building, P. O. Box 8466, Harrisburg, PA 17105-8466, telephone (717) 787-6744, or by Internet E-Mail ( by 4 p.m., October 28, 1996.
