Proposed Water Management Experimental Permit for Small Flow Sewage Treatment System

[27 Pa.B. 6014]

   The Pennsylvania Rural Electric Association (PREA) has applied for an experimental permit to construct and operate a new technology demonstration project on the property of Roger Van Ord, Farmington Township, Warren County. The project will consist of a small flow sewage treatment system comprised of conventional septic tanks, a recirculating sand filter and an ultraviolet light for disinfection. A discharge into a soil infiltration system is planned. The project is designed to serve a home and will address existing sewage problems at the project location.

   Unless otherwise indicated on the basis of detailed technical review of the application and/or lack of submission of necessary prerequisite planning approvals or municipal sponsorship/ordinance assuring proper operation and maintenance of the project, the Department of Environmental Protection (Department) has made a tentative decision to issue the experimental permit. All experimental permits represent only the conditional approval of systems and must be promptly replaced or modified by the permittee, to the satisfaction of the Department if they fail, malfunction or cause a public nuisance. At the completion of the successful demonstration, the permit will be transferred to the property owner who will be responsible for continued compliance, operation and maintenance.

   Persons wishing to comment on the proposed permit are invited to submit a written statement to Permits Section, Division of Wastewater Management, P. O. Box 8774, Harrisburg, PA 17105-8774, or John Murtha @A1.DEP.STATE.PA.US within 30 days from the date of this public notice. Comments received within this 30-day period will be considered in formulating the final determination regarding this application. All comments should include the name, address and telephone number of the writer and a brief statement to inform the Department of the basis of the comment and the relevant facts upon which it is based. A fact-finding public meeting may be held if the Department considers the public response significant.

   Following the comment period, the Department will make a final determination regarding the proposed permit action. Notice of the final determination will be published in the Pennsylvania Bulletin at which time this determination may be appealed to the Environmental Hearing Board.

   The permit application and related documents, and the proposed permit with any special conditions can be inspected at the Division of Wastewater Management located on the 11th floor of the Rachel Carson State Office Building, 400 Market Street, Harrisburg, PA.
