Science Conference of January 10-12, 2005; report on the Flow 
Management Technical Advisory Committee Work Group Meetings of November 
9-10 and December 3, 2004 and January 6 and 18, 2005; and a proposed 
resolution to adopt the Commission's annual budget for the fiscal year 
ending June 30, 2005 and to apportion among the signatory parties the 
amounts required for support of the Commission's annual and operating 
budgets.

treatment plant discharge for the Knoll Furniture Manufacturing 
Facility located off Water Street, approximately 1,000 feet northeast 
of its intersection with Peevy Road in Upper Hanover Township, 
Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. No new treatment facilities are 
proposed. A junction box at the sewage treatment plant will be 
repaired, and the facility will be rerated to include an additional 
3,000 gallons of wastewater flow. Although the current docket provides 
for a flow of 0.07 million gallons per day (mgd), the wastewater 
treatment plant provides advanced treatment of a total flow of 0.073 
mgd from sanitary, process and cooling water sources prior to discharge 
to Perkiomen Creek in the Schuylkill River Watershed.
    2. Alcoa Extrusions, Inc. D-82-5-3. An application for the renewal 
of a ground water withdrawal project to reduce withdrawal from 21.6 
million gallons per 30 days (mg/30 days) to 11.0 mg/30 days to supply

amend the current docket, which provides for a discharge from the 0.3 
million gallons per day (mgd) (design) industrial waste treatment plant 
(IWTP) to contain and treat mercury contaminated groundwater at the 
applicant's Delaware City chemical manufacturing plant located off 
State Route 9 in New Castle County, Delaware. Barrier walls have been 
constructed around the perimeter of the Process Area and Waste Lake 1. 
Contaminated groundwater from within these containments will be pumped 
at a maximum rate of 30 gallons per minute (43,200 gallons per day) for 
treatment at an activated carbon treatment system before being 
discharged to the existing IWTP for mercury removal. The IWTP discharge 
is to the Delaware River in Water Quality Zone 5.

GROWS Landfills and is located off Bordentown Road in Falls Township, 
Bucks County, Pennsylvania. The existing 0.1 million gallons per day 
leachate treatment plant utilizes the Best Available Treatment 
Technology but cannot consistently meet effluent total dissolved solids 
and color limits. The docket holder has requested modification of its 
docket to allow an increase in the average discharge concentration of 
Total Dissolved Solids to 10,000 mg/l from the current 6,560 mg/l and 
an increase in the maximum effluent limit for True Color to 1,500 units 
from the current 750 units on a platinum-cobalt scale. In support of 
its requested modifications, the docket holder has completed an 
environmental study that indicates the changes would result in no 
significant impact to the Delaware Estuary. No increase in

[[Page 84]]

treatment plant capacity is proposed. The docket holder also proposes 
to construct two effluent storage tanks at the GROWS leachate treatment 
plant to replace an existing tank and seeks approval to haul non-
hazardous leachate to a proposed transfer station that will reroute 
flow to the Morrisville Borough sewage treatment plant, just upstream 
on the tidal Delaware River within Water Quality Zone 2.

structure (TCS) originally docketed under D-96-50 CP. The applicant 
requests removal of the Q7-10 passby requirement when the 
natural stream flow is less than 17.2 mgd or chlorides immediately at 
the outlet of the TCS bypass structure downstream of the TCS are 
greater than 250 ppm. Surface water is withdrawn from the confluence of 
the White Clay Creek and Red Clay Creek at the Stanton Intake, and/or 
from the tidal backflow from the Christina River created by the TCS,
