Notice of Public Hearing and Special Commission Meeting

[28 Pa.B. 6315]

   The Delaware River Basin Commission (Commission) will hold a public hearing and meeting for business on January 5, 1999, at 10 a.m. in the Goddard Conference Room of the Commission's offices at 25 State Police Drive, West Trenton, New Jersey.

Possible Drought Emergency Declaration

   Section 10.4 of the Delaware River Basin Compact provides that in the event of a drought or other condition which may cause an actual and immediate shortage of available water supply within the Basin, or within any part thereof, the Commission may, after public hearing, determine and delineate the area of the shortage and declare a water supply emergency therein. For the duration of the emergency, the Commission could limit the extent to which water users may divert or withdraw water for any purpose. The Commission is considering whether current and developing conditions of water supply and demand require the declaration of a water supply emergency.

   The purpose of this hearing is to permit the public to comment on these matters and to make any suggestions or recommendations concerning possible Commission actions.

   There will be a business meeting of the Commission immediately following the hearing to consider possible Commission actions relating to the drought situation.
