The performance standards, a detailed Federal consistency determination, and the applicants' analysis of the proposed rulemaking is available at

Interested parties may request a copy of the Federal Consistency Determination from the Department contact listed as follows.

 Questions regarding this review should be directed to Matthew Walderon, Federal Consistency Coordinator, at or (717) 772-2196.

 The Department will consider all comments received on or before February 4, 2019, before issuing a final Federal consistency concurrence or objection.
