prior to discharge to the Schuylkill River at the existing discharge 
point. Please note the docket number change. A Notice of Application 
Received was issued for this application on April 2, 2004 under D-2004-
16.
    6. Antietam Valley Municipal Authority D-87-45 CP-2. An application 
to modify a 1.225 mgd WWTP to more effectively process hydraulic surges 
due to wet weather-related infiltration and inflow (I & I) to the 
collection system. The WWTP will continue to serve predominantly 
residential portions of St. Lawrence Borough, Mount Penn Borough, and 
Exeter and Lower Alsace townships, all within Berks County, 
Pennsylvania. The WWTP is located on Butter Lane in St. Lawrence 
Borough just east of the intersection of State Route 562 and U.S. Route 
422. The WWTP will continue to discharge to Antietam Creek in the 
Schuylkill River Watershed through the existing outfall. No increase in 
treatment capacity is proposed, as the docket holder will continue its 
efforts to control I & I.
    7. Waste Management Disposal Services of Pennsylvania, Inc. D-88-
54-3. An application to modify a landfill leachate treatment plant 
(LTP) discharge to the tidal Delaware River via a constructed discharge 
cove in DRBC Water Quality Zone 2. The 0.1 mgd LTP serves the GROWS and 
Tullytown Sanitary Landfills and is located off Bordentown Road in 
Falls Township, Bucks County, Pennsylvania. The LTP utilizes best

contaminants, with the exception of total dissolved solids (TDS). The 
docket holder has requested that its docket be modified to allow an 
interim average concentration of up to 15,000 milligrams per liter (mg/
l) of TDS in the plant's discharge, an increase from the current limit 
of 10,000 mg/l as an average. Approximately 3,000 mg/l of TDS is added 
to the leachate treatment process to facilitate ammonia stripping, 
metals prescription and sludge conditioning. The proposed LTP discharge 
is expected to increase background TDS in the estuary by less than 0.5 
percent. An environmental study will be conducted to demonstrate that 
no adverse impact will occur to aquatic life in the discharge cove 
before an application to increase the LTP effluent TDS concentration to 
19,100 mg/l is considered. The project involves no expansion of the 
treatment facilities or treatment capacity.
    8. Mount Airy #1, LLC D-89-37-2. An application for approval of a 
ground water withdrawal project to supply up to 9.5 mg/30 days of water

mg/30 days. The project is located in the Columbia/Cheswold Formation 
in the Smyrna River Watershed in the Town of Smyrna, Kent County, 
Delaware.
    10. Degussa Corporation D-96-11-2. An application to expand the 
industrial waste treatment plant's (IWTP) existing discharge to the 
Delaware River from 0.95 mgd to 1.15 mgd. In conjunction with the 
expanded discharge, the applicant also has requested a new 
determination of the IWTP's allowable Total Dissolved Solids limit. The 
facility, which will continue to serve only the applicant's silica 
production operations, is located in the City of Chester, Delaware 
County, Pennsylvania.
    11. Moyer Packing, Rendering and Beef Facility D-96-21-2. An 
application to re-establish the DRBC's industrial wastewater treatment 
plant (IWTP) effluent Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) determination of 
3,100 mg/l, issued to Moyer Packing Company (MOPAC) in 1985. The TDS 
determination was later replaced by an osmotic pressure limit contained 
in the facility's NPDES Permit. DRBC staff has determined that the 
effluent TDS limit of 3,100 mg/l is not protective of a downstream 
agricultural use and is recommending that the Commission rescind the 
TDS limit currently in effect and impose the Commission's basinwide TDS 
standard of 1000 mg/l, unless the applicant provides the downstream 
irrigation user with an alternative water source. No increase of 
MOPAC's 0.75 mgd IWTP capacity is proposed. The IWTP will continue to 
serve only the MOPAC meat packing and rendering facility, which is 
located in Franconia Township, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. IWTP 
effluent will continue to discharge to Skippack Creek in the Schuylkill 
River Watershed through the existing outfall.
