Water Pollution Control Revolving Fund; Federal FY 1996 and 1997 Sewage Project Priority List

[27 Pa.B. 1701]

   The Pennsylvania Infrastructure Investment Authority and the Department of Environmental Protection have revised the combined Federal fiscal year 1996/1997 Water Pollution Control Revolving Fund (WPCRF) Project Priority List (list) of municipal sewage construction projects.

   The FY 96/97 list was prepared in conformance with the requirements of section 216 of the Water Quality Act (act) and Federal guidance and was approved by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) on September 17, 1996. The projects included on the list have a project priority rating established under the Department's EPA approved Chapter 103 project priority rating system. The act stipulates that States must maintain a list of municipal sewage projects from which to develop the annual Intended Use Plan (IUP) list of projects to be funded with Federal funds Pennsylvania receives to capitalize the WPCRF.

   The 18 projects proposed for addition to the list will not replace any project currently on the approved FY 96/97 List. These 18 projects are additions and are being placed in the appropriate ranking slot in relation to other rated and ranked projects on the list. The rank order standing of projects on the list does not dictate the order in which projects are chosen for funding in the WPCRF program. A project may be selected from any numerical rank position on the list for funding. A project's readiness to proceed and the reasonable availability of alternative sources of funds have a bearing on project selection for funding in the program.

   Sixteen of the 18 projects to be added to the FY 96/97 list are expected to proceed to construction in the near future and the other two are being added as potential projects for future construction loan consideration. The 16 projects expected to be ready for loan funding in the near future have submitted applications for funding and will be placed on an IUP to (1) replace projects that have not proceeded timely toward initiation of project construction and/or (2) to fill funding gaps that have developed as a result of cost savings. Projects removed from an IUP will remain on the list and be considered for WPCRF loan funds in the future.

   Federal guidance on revising an approved list indicates the list be subject to public comment and review before being submitted to EPA. Interested persons are invited to express their views on the priority rating or ranking of projects on the revised FY 96/97 list. Persons wishing to offer comments should submit them in writing to the Administrative Services Section, Division of Municipal Financial Assistance, Bureau of Water Supply Management, 11th 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., May 5, 1997.
