EXEMPT from fees
These entities are exempt from these fees. If the applicant falls into one of these categories, please check the box above and
provide only the first page of this worksheet with the project application or registration.
ALL OTHERS:
1. Please place an “X” in the box next to all authorizations that apply to the project and complete the fee information below those
authorization(s). Projects may require multiple authorizations and fees, further clarification and examples are included below
and at the end of this document.
2. Total each authorization, Section, and Part. Part One is for Water Obstructions and Encroachment authorizations, Part Two is
for Dam Safety authorizations.
3. Please provide this completed worksheet (page 1 and page 2 and/or page 3, as is appropriate to the project) and a check for
the applicable fee(s) with the project application or registration. The check should be made payable to the “
Commonwealth
of Pennsylvania Clean Water Fund
” OR “
Conservation District Clean Water Fund
”, whichever is the reviewing
entity.
NOTES:
Per
25 PA Code §105.13(c)(2)(iii)
Disturbance review fees are calculated by individually adding all of the permanent and
temporary impacts to waterways, floodways, floodplains and bodies of water including wetlands to the next highest tenth acre
and multiplying the permanent and temporary impacts by the respective fees and then these amounts are added to the other
applicable fees.
Entities proposing structures or activities to occupy a Submerged Lands of the Commonwealth must obtain a Submerged
Lands License Agreement (SLLA) and pay the appropriate annual charge. The applicant will be contacted if this charge
applies to the project.
Floodway
– The channel of the watercourse and portions of the adjoining floodplains which are reasonably required to carry
and discharge the 100-year frequency flood. Unless otherwise specified, the boundary of the floodway is as indicated on
maps and flood insurance studies provided by FEMA. In an area where no FEMA maps or studies have defined the boundary
of the 100-year frequency floodway, it is assumed, absent evidence to the contrary, that the floodway extends from the stream
to 50 feet from the top of the bank of the stream.
Wetland and Stream Clarification:
1
In many instances, wetlands are located
within the floodplain of a stream.
These
resources for the purposes of calculating
disturbance fees are considered co-located
or overlapping and the area of disturbance
would only be used once.
2
In the case of GP-5, GP-7 and GP-8 fees
are charged per structure per resource
crossing and the following also applies to
the disturbance fees:
?
A crossing of the stream and the
floodplain with wetlands present within
the
floodplain
is
considered
one
resource crossing.
?
When the crossing traverses a stream
and the floodplain and a wetland that is
located outside of the floodplain or a
wetland that extends out beyond the
floodplain, it is considered two resource
crossings.

Dam Safety Examples:
5. New Dam Permit Application:
This project proposes to construct a 25-foot high dam that has a maximum storage of
500 acre-feet of water. This dam would be classified as a size category “C” dam per §105.91. There is one home and one
roadway within the inundation area downstream of the dam. This dam would have a hazard classification of “2”. All stream
and wetland impacts are covered under the Dam Permit Application. An Environmental Assessment is required as part of
the Dam Permit Application, but a separate fee is not required.

This project proposes to modify a 25-foot high dam that has a
maximum storage of 500 acre-feet of water. This dam would be classified as a size category “C” dam per §105.91. The
proposed modification involves buttressing the downstream slope of the dam with soil to improve the stability. The total
project cost will be $100,000. A small wetland area will be impacted near the toe of the buttress. An Environmental
Assessment will be required to assess the impacts to the wetland.

7. New Dam Permit Application with Staged Construction and Disturbance Review Fees:
The project proposes to
construct a staged construction, high hazard dam, to be utilized for containing a slurry impoundment. There will also be a
refuse pile constructed adjacent to the slurry impoundment impacting 1000 linear feet of stream, causing a permanent
disturbance to the 3-foot wide stream and 50 feet of floodway on either side of the stream [1000 x (50+3+50)]. A refuse
stockpile will also impact 200 linear feet of stream, causing a permanent disturbance to the 3-foot wide stream and 50 feet of
floodway on either side of the stream [200 x (50+3+50)]. The Dam Safety Application Fee will include the application fee for
the applicable size and hazard classification of the dam. The Dam Safety Application Fee will also include a fee equal to
90% of the original application fee for each stage beyond the initial stage, including any closure stages.
