    In addition to the public hearing on the dockets listed above, the 
Commission's 1:30 p.m. business meeting will include a public hearing 
on a proposed resolution to ratify a Decree Party agreement for banking 
the 2006-2007 excess release quantity. The Commission also will 
consider action on: A resolution authorizing the Executive Director to 
enter into a contract for analysis of benthic macroinvertebrate samples

resolution authorizing the Executive Director to accept funds from the 
Federal Emergency Management Agency for the development of multi-

Commission's May 10, 2006 business meeting; announcements; a report on 
basin hydrologic conditions; a report by the Executive Director; a 
report by the Commission's General Counsel; and an opportunity for

    In addition, supplemental notice is hereby provided for Docket No. 
D-2002-34 CP, issued on September 3, 2003, by which the Commission 
approved a ground water allocation for the New Castle County 
distribution system of the Artesian Water Company, Inc. (``Artesian''). 
The docket was reissued on May 18, 2005 as Docket D-2002-34 CP-2 to 
accommodate a modification unrelated to this supplemental notice. Both 
the 2003 and 2005 dockets provided for multiple ground water 
withdrawals from approximately 40 wells in the more than one dozen 
wellfields comprising Artesian's New Castle County

distribution system. The purpose of this supplemental notice is to 
highlight the inclusion in Docket D-2002-34 CP and continuation in 
Docket D-2002-34 CP-2 of New Well No. 4 to supply up to 6.48 million 
gallons per 30 days (mg/30 days) of water to the applicant's Artisan's 
Village public water supply distribution system. The addition of New 
Well No. 4 entailed no increase in the maximum combined withdrawal from 
the Artisan's Village wellfield, which remained unchanged by Docket D-
2002-34 CP, at 90.72 mg/30 days. Although a notice of application 
received (NAR) was published for the proposed new well on September 11, 
2002, the public notice issued in advance of the September 3, 2003 
hearing did not highlight approval of the well. The modified docket 
issued by the Commission to Artesian Water Company in 2005 included no 
change associated with the Artisan's Village distribution system. Any 
person seeking a hearing to review the Commission's action in approving 
New Well No. 4 in the Artisan's Village wellfield may request a hearing 
in accordance with Article 6 of the Commission's Rules of Practice and 
Procedure, provided that such a request is received by the Commission 
within 30 days of the date this notice appears in either the Federal 
Register or the Pennsylvania Code and Bulletin, whichever date is 
later.
    Draft dockets, the resolutions scheduled for public hearing on July 
19, 2006, and the dockets associated with the supplemental notice 
provided above will be posted on the Commission's Web site, http://
www.drbc.net, where they can be accessed through the Notice of 
Commission Meeting and Public Hearing. Additional documents relating to 
the dockets and other items may be examined at the Commission's 
offices. Please contact William Muszynski at 609-883-9500, extension 
221, with any docket-related questions.
