Program deadline is: December 31, 2019
Have you received a letter from the SRBC regarding your water use?
Do you have a groundwater withdrawal of 100,000 gallons of water per day or more initiated prior to July 13, 1978? *
Do you have a surface water withdrawal of 100,000 gallons per day or more initiated prior to November 11, 1995?*
Does your facility consume 20,000 gallons per day or more from surface water, groundwater, a combination thereof, or any other source (including a public water supply), initiated prior to January 23, 1971?*
Don’t miss the deadline and lose your grandfathered status.
If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you will want to utilize the Grandfathered Water Use Registration Program provided by the Susquehanna River Basin Commission.
NOTE Threshold volumes are expressed as consecutive 30–day averages. The facility’s volume is determined by totaling the actual daily withdrawal or consumptive use over the peak consecutive 30–day period, then dividing by 30.
* if you initiated a withdrawal above these quantities after the listed dates, you should already have a permit.
