As of November 14, 2012, the PA Department of Environmental Protection's (DEP) new Permit Review Process (PRP) and Permit Decision Guarantee (PDG) and Permit Coordination Policies are being implemented for various Chapter 102 programs (including NPDES Permits for Stormwater Discharges Associated with Construction Activities) by the Clarion Conservation District. Permit applicants and their consultants should review the SOPs and revised permit application materials carefully to become familiar with the new procedures and avoid potential project delays.

Erosion and Sedimentation
Erosion and Sedimentation (E & S) controls are used in instances where soil is being disturbed by development, timber harvesting or by highway development. E & S Control Plans that are submitted to our office for review must include measures that will promote the maintenance and protection of existing water quality and its uses. E & S Tech Devin Lineman reviews erosion and sediment pollution control plans, conducts site inspections, receives, answers and services complaints, and processes permit applications pursuant to the NPDES program. The District has established a fee schedule for the review of E & S Pollution Control Plans. Questions regarding fees and the review process should be directed to Trudy Alexander at 814-297-7811.
