The Delaware River Basin Commission will hold a public hearing and business meeting on Tuesday, December 9 and Wednesday, December 10, 2014, respectively. Both are open to the public and will be held at the Washington Crossing Historic Park Visitor Center, 1112 River Road, Washington Crossing, Pa.

Public Hearing: Tuesday, December 9, 2014 - 1:30 P.M.

The public hearing on December 9, 2014 will begin at 1:30 p.m. Hearing items will include draft dockets for the withdrawals, discharges, and other water-related projects listed below and for a resolution (pdf 20 KB) adopting the Commission's Water Resources Program FY 2015-17 (pdf 2 MB). Written comments on matters scheduled for hearing on December 9 will be accepted through the close of the hearing that day.

The hearing also will include an opportunity for docket holders that recently received notices of violation from the DRBC in connection with monitoring requirements or effluent limitations contained in their dockets to show cause why a penalty should not be assessed for the alleged violations in accordance with the provisions of Article 7 of the Rules of Practice and Procedure and Section 14.17 of the Delaware River Basin Compact.

After the hearing on all scheduled matters has been completed, the meeting will include an opportunity for public dialogue. 

Draft dockets and resolutions scheduled for hearing are posted on the Commission's website, www.drbc.net, ten days prior to the hearing date.

The public is advised to check the Commission's web site periodically prior to the hearing date, as items scheduled for hearing may be postponed if additional time is deemed necessary to complete the Commission's review. In reviewing docket descriptions, the public is also asked to be aware that project details commonly change in the course of the Commission's review, which is ongoing.

Please be advised that during the public hearing on December 9 the staff will continue the practice employed during the hearing on September 9, 2014 of offering a shorter presentation than in the past for the subset of draft dockets that consist of renewals where a project has undergone no substantive changes. Interested parties will have the same opportunity to comment on or ask questions concerning these dockets as they have historically had, and if any member of the public requests additional information about a project during the hearing, staff will be prepared to offer more detail. A detailed description of each project is included in the draft docket, which can be accessed on the DRBC website via a hyperlink from this hearing notice.
