Technical Guidance Final—Minor Revision

 DEP ID: 385-2000-011. Title: Pennsylvania Combined Sewer Overflow (CSO) Policy. Description: Technical Guidance 385-2000-011 sets forth procedures to improve and preserve the purity of Commonwealth waters through adequate permitting and controls of CSOs in order to protect public health, plant life and animal life. The guidance has been in effect since September 6, 2008 and can be found on the Department's web site. In the current guidance a Discharge Monitoring Report (DMR) form is required to be submitted every month. In an effort to reduce the need for the Permittee to complete and submit unnecessary reports, the Department is amending the guidance to add a new DMR form. The new DMR form will only be required for the months when a CSO outfall has a discharge. The newly posted forms are listed as Attachment 3 and include: ''CSO Supplemental Report Monthly Inspection Report'' form and instructions and ''CSO Supplemental Report Detailed Outfall Report'' form and instructions. This action is intended to ease the paperwork burden on the Permittee and the Department and does not in any way affect the policies and procedures outlined in the September 6, 2008 guidance. Contact: Questions regarding the final guidance document should be directed to Chris Whiteash at (717) 783-9710 or Effective Date: Upon publication of notice as final in the Pennsylvania Bulletin.
