The project is located south of State Route 422 at the former Occidental Chemical Corporation facility in Lower Pottsgrove Township, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. Occidental Chemical Corporation remains the owner of the property, but its affiliate, Glenn Springs Holdings, Inc. is the operator of the ground and storm water treatment facility. Currently, up to 0.5 mgd of flow containing volatile organic chemicals is treated by carbon absorption and air stripping before it is discharged to the Pottstown City Sewage Treatment Plant. Approval is requested to discharge the treated effluent directly to the Schuylkill River through storm water Outfall 005, as a cost-savings measure. No increase in capacity is proposed, nor are any new production or recovery wells necessary. The industrial waste treatment plant and surface water supply intake described in DRBC Docket No. D–76–17 will remain inactive. The production (water supply) wells that were referenced in that docket will remain in use as recovery wells. The combined allocation for Recovery Wells Nos. 1, 1R, 4, 5, 6, 8, 8A, 9, 9A, 10A, A, B and C will be a total of 15 mg/30 days.

022. The discharges from Outfall Nos. 004, 005, 015, 019 and 022 are to 
the Aquashicola Creek, which is a tributary to the Lehigh River. The 
discharges are located in the drainage area of the Lower Delaware 
Special Protection Water Area. The facility is located in Palmerton 
Borough, Carbon County, Pennsylvania.
    5. Cabot Corporation D-70-72-3. An application for approval to 
modify planned improvements to the applicant's industrial wastewater 
treatment plant (IWTP) upgrade project, approved by the Commission on 
October 24, 2004, and to implement manufacturing operation improvements 
necessary to meet water quality objectives in Swamp Creek. The 
applicant produces inorganic chemicals and primary nonferrous metals 
and alloys at its Boyertown Facility, which is located off Swamp Creek 
Road and straddles the borders of Douglass Township, Montgomery County 
and Colebrookdale Township, Berks County, both in Pennsylvania. Based 
upon revised production rate projections, the applicant has determined 
that modification of the existing IWTP would be more cost effective 
than constructing new facilities. In addition, the average design flow 
is proposed to be reduced to 0.15 mgd from the previously approved 
0.222 mgd. The plant effluent, along with storm water, cooling water 
and water supply treatment wastewater, will continue to be discharged 
via the existing outfall to Swamp Creek in the Schuylkill River

a wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) expansion project to provide 
secondary treatment to up to 0.7 mgd, a proposed increase of 0.1 mgd 
from the existing capacity. The WWTP discharges effluent to the West 
Branch Delaware River in DRBC Water Quality Zone W1. The project is 
located in the Upper Delaware Special Protection Waters drainage area 
in the Village of Deposit, Broome and Delaware Counties, New York. The 
WWTP will continue to serve the Village of Deposit and may serve the 
Town of Deposit, Delaware County, New York in the future.
    7. Glenn Springs Holdings, Inc. D-76-17-2. An application to 
discharge treated storm and ground water into the Schuylkill River in 
an area that is conditionally designated as ``Modified Recreational'' 
in the Comprehensive Plan. The project is located south of State Route 
422 at the former Occidental Chemical Corporation facility in Lower 
Pottsgrove Township, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. Occidental 
Chemical Corporation remains the owner of the property, but its 
affiliate, Glenn Springs Holdings, Inc. is the operator of the ground 
and storm water treatment facility. Currently, up to 0.5 mgd of flow 
containing volatile organic chemicals is treated by carbon absorption 
and air stripping before it is discharged to the Pottstown City Sewage 
Treatment Plant. Approval is requested to discharge the treated 
effluent directly to the Schuylkill River through storm water Outfall 
005, as a cost-savings measure. No increase in capacity is proposed, 
nor are any new production or recovery wells necessary. The industrial 
waste treatment plant and surface water supply intake described in DRBC 
Docket No. D-76-17 will remain inactive. The production (water supply) 
wells that were referenced in that docket will remain in use as 
recovery wells. The combined allocation for Recovery Wells Nos. 1, 1R, 
4, 5, 6, 8, 8A, 9, 9A, 10A, A, B and C will be a total of 15 mg/30

Southeastern Pennsylvania Ground Water Protected Area.
    8. Borough of Alburtis D-91-42 CP-3. An application to replace the 
withdrawal of water from Well No. 3 in the applicant's water supply 
system with a withdrawal from Well No. 3A, because Well No. 3 has 
become an unreliable source of supply. The applicant requests that the 
withdrawal from replacement Well No. 3A be limited to 7.5 mg/30 days of 
water, and that the total withdrawal from all wells be increased to 
11.487 mg/30 days from the previous allocation of 6.5 mg/30 days in 
order to meet projected increases in service area demand. The project 
is located in the Leithsville and Hornblende Gneiss formations in the 
Swabia Creek Watershed in Alburtis Borough, Lehigh County, 
Pennsylvania.
    9. New Hanover Township Authority D-99-40 CP-2. An application for 
approval of the expansion of the New Hanover Township Authority's WWTP 
from 0.825 mgd to 1.925 mgd. The WWTP will continue to discharge to 
Swamp Creek, a tributary of the Perkiomen Creek, which is tributary to 
the Schuylkill River. The facility is located in New Hanover Township, 
Montgomery County, Pennsylvania.
    10. The Upper Hanover Authority D-2002-10 CP-2. An application for 
the renewal of a ground water withdrawal project to increase the total 
system withdrawal from 32.12 mg/30 days to 43.113 mg/30 days to supply 
the applicant's public water supply distribution system from existing 
Wells Nos. RH-1, RH-2, RH-3, TUHA-1, TUHA-2, TUHA-3, TUHA-4 and 
Kemmerer Spring in the Brunswick and Leithsville Formations. The 
increased allocation is requested in order to meet projected increases 
in service area demand. The project is located in the Perkiomen and 
Macoby Creek Watersheds in Upper Hanover Township, Montgomery County, 
Pennsylvania and within the Southeastern Pennsylvania Ground Water 
Protected Area.
