plant (STP) to process 2.75 mgd, while continuing to provide secondary 
level treatment. The project is located in Logan Township, Gloucester 
County, New Jersey approximately 200 feet west of High Hills Road and 
just south of the railroad right-of-way through Maple Swamp. Due to 
high quality treatment processes, the applicant proposes to meet 
stringent NPDES permit limits regarding effluent loadings and 
concentrations. The project effluent will continue to discharge to the 
Delaware River in Water Quality Zone 4 via an existing outfall, which 
is shared with Ferro Corporation, formerly owned by Monsanto Chemical 
Company.
    13. Richland Township Water Authority D-96-44 CP-2. An application 
for approval of a ground water withdrawal project to supply up to 2.25 
mg/30 days of water to the applicant's public water supply distribution 
system from Wells Nos. 2, 3 and 4, recently purchased from Melody Lakes 
Properties, and to increase the total combined withdrawal from these 
wells and the existing Richland Township Water Authority wells to 31.55 
mg/30 days. While this represents an increase in allocation to the 
Richland Township Water Authority, it does not represent an increase in 
withdrawals from the watershed since both the Melody Lakes project 
allocation and the existing Richland Township Water Authority 
allocation are located in the Tohickon Creek Watershed. The project is 
located in the Brunswick Formation in Richland Township, Bucks County, 
Pennsylvania and is located in the Southeastern Pennsylvania Ground 
Water Protected Area.
    14. Sanofi Pasteur, Inc. D-99-71-2. An application to expand the 
applicant's existing IWTP from 0.35 mgd to 0.95 mgd and to increase the 
discharge to Swiftwater Creek from 0.35 mgd to 0.55 mgd. Beginning in 
2007, wastewater will be treated via Sanofi Pasteur's (Sanofi's) 
existing IWTP, rerated to process 0.45 mgd, and disposed through a 
combination of landscape irrigation (up to 0.045 mgd), discharge to 
Swiftwater Creek (0.45 mgd) and wastewater reuse. Beginning in 2008, 
wastewater will be treated via Sanofi's upgraded IWTP and disposed 
through a combination of land application (up to 0.245 mgd), discharge 
to Swiftwater Creek (up to 0.55 mgd), and wastewater reuse. Beginning 
in 2010, wastewater will be treated via Sanofi's upgraded IWTP and 
disposed through a combination of land application (up to 0.245 mgd), 
discharge to Swiftwater Creek (up to 0.55 mgd), use of the proposed 
Pocono Township Wastewater Treatment Plant (up to 0.35 mgd), and 
wastewater reuse. The application is for a discharge of 0.55 mgd to 
Swiftwater Creek, a tributary to the Brodhead Creek. The facility is 
located in Pocono Township, Monroe County, Pennsylvania.
    15. Artesian Water Company, Inc. D-2003-22 CP-2. An application for 
approval of a ground water withdrawal project to supply up to 4.32 mg/
30 days of water to the applicant's public water supply distribution 
system from replacement Well No. 1R in the Upper Mt. Laurel Formation 
in the Bayview Wellfield and to retain the existing withdrawal of 150 
mg/30 days from the applicant's nine (9) wellfields supplying the 
Southern New Castle County distribution system. The project is located 
in the C&D Canal East Watershed in New Castle County, Delaware.
    16. Alcoa Extrusions, Inc. D-2005-1-2. An application to increase 
the average and maximum discharge concentration of total dissolved 
solids (TDS) from 1,000 milligrams per liter (mg/l) to 2,000 mg/l and 
4,000 milligrams per liter, respectively. The discharge will be made 
via an existing outfall to the West Branch Schuylkill River. In support 
of the requested modification, the docket holder has submitted an 
analysis concluding that the increased solids concentrations will cause 
no adverse effect on the downstream aquatic community, nor will they 
threaten potable water supply intakes located over 65 river miles 
downstream of the confluence of the West Branch Schuylkill River with 
the main stem Schuylkill River. No expansion of the treatment facility 
is proposed. The proposed modifications are attributable to 
installation of a new reverse osmosis treatment system that will reduce 
water consumption at the facility but will generate a concentrated 
waste stream during operation. The treatment facility is located in 
Cressona Borough, Schuylkill County, Pennsylvania.
    17. Pierson-Gaskill Golf Properties, Inc. D-2000-49. An application 
for approval of a ground water withdrawal project to supply up to 4.24 
mg/30 days of water to the applicant's Town & Country Golf Links golf 
course irrigation system from new Wells Nos. 1 and 2 in the Mt. Laurel/
Wenonah Aquifer and up to 8 mg/30 days from one intake in an irrigation 
pond and to limit the withdrawal from all sources to 8 mg/30 days. The 
project is located in Pilesgrove Township, Salem County, New Jersey.
    18. New Egypt Speedway D-2006-1-1. An application for approval of a 
ground and surface water withdrawal and importation project to supply 
less than 3.1 mg/30 days of water to the applicant's automobile racing 
track from the Pond Well, Office Well and Pond Intake. The Pond Well
