DEP Chapter 110 Water Withdrawal Reporting Due

Article by Josie Gaskey, PACA's Director of Environmental, Safety and Health

25 PA Code Chapter 110 became effective upon its publication in the Pennsylvania Bulletin on November 15, 2008.  This DEP regulation establishes water withdrawal and use registration, monitoring, record-keeping and reporting requirements for facilities (quarries included) whose total withdrawal from the point of withdrawal, or from multiple points of withdrawal operated as a system either concurrently or sequentially, within a watershed, exceeds an average rate of 10,000 gallons per day in any 30-day period.  Annual reporting is required by June following the report year.

Forms and instructions are provided by DEP and their Water Use and Registration website can be found here.  A separate registration form must be completed for each source of water.  Note this registration and reporting is in addition to any reporting required by the Basin Commissions.  Section 110.501. Metering and measuring requirements can be found here.  Should you have any questions or comments, don’t hesitate to contact Josie Gaskey.
