DEFINITIONS APPLICABLE TO THIS GENERAL PERMIT
- The following words and terms, when
used in this General Permit, have the following meanings:
BANK REHABILITATION AND BANK PROTECTION - To restore and/or protect the bank of a
stream, lake, pond or reservoir against erosion, scour or sloughing by utilizing any of the
following: slope protection, dumped rock protection, cribbing, walls, channel deflectors, vegetative
stabilization techniques.
CHANNEL REALIGNMENT - Any alteration of the stream channel alignment which involves
excavation into an existing stream bank.
CONCRETE RUBBLE - Broken concrete in pieces not to exceed 5 feet in length where neither the
width or thickness is less than 1/3 its length and all reinforcing is removed flush with the face of the
concrete.
DUMPED ROCK PROTECTION - Sound, durable stone or concrete rubble, insoluble in water and
placed by dumping for the purpose of protecting against erosion, scour or sloughing of a bank. To
resist transport by flowing water, National Stone Association R-7 is the minimum size rock which
shall be used for dumped rock protection.
FILTER LAYER - Well-graded, hard, durable, non-soluble particles (free from muck, topsoil,
organic matter or rubbish) or geotextile fabric, placed under slope protection to prevent the natural
soil of the bank from being washed away through the slope protection layer.
GRAVEL BARS - Alluvial deposits in stream channels, including accumulations of gravel, glacial till,
sediment, silt and flood debris, which obstruct and redirect flow, and which are thereby associated
with stream bank erosion.
RIPRAP - A layer, facing or protective mound of stone in random size pieces, selectively placed to
prevent erosion, scour or sloughing of a bank.
SLOPE PROTECTION - A layer or facing of sound, durable rock or similar material (natural or
manmade), insoluble in water, selectively placed by hand or machine and sized to resist transport
by flowing water.
VEGETATED - An area having greater than 50 percent surface coverage of persistent vegetation
during the growing season (undisturbed by acts of man). Persistent vegetation is defined as having
a predominance of perennial plant species with the exclusion of first year class seedlings of woody
vegetation (shrubs and trees). The vegetational groupings to be considered consist of grasslikes,
grasses, forbs, vines, shrubs and trees.
D.
PROJECT DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION CRITERIA
1.
The use of this General Permit is limited to activities which constitute a single, complete
project in and along a continuous reach of stream channel not exceeding 500 feet in length.
Multiple registration and use of this General Permit for the purpose of extending a project
activity beyond the maximum length is prohibited; however, the Department will consider

3150-PM-BWEW0503
Rev. 6/2013
1-3
authorizing more extensive projects upon receipt of an application for an individual Water
Obstruction and Encroachment Permit. Because this General Permit authorizes only single,
complete projects, repeated projects each require a separate registration of General Permit
use.
2.
Construction of the bank rehabilitation, bank protection project or removal of a gravel bar
should not constrict or increase the normal channel width. The configuration of the shoreline
shall remain substantially the same and the work shall align smoothly with, and not project
further into the channel than adjacent upstream and downstream banks. The upstream and
downstream ends of a bank rehabilitation or bank protection project shall be keyed into the
stream bank to ensure stability.
3. Construction and other activities authorized by this General Permit shall be performed in a
manner that minimizes use of equipment within the stream channel or body of water.
4.
Bank rehabilitation, bank protection and gravel bar removal shall take place during periods
when the stream is at low flow.
5.
To the greatest extent possible, the project shall be designed and constructed in a manner
which will (a) prevent permanent or long-term adverse changes in water quality, (b) minimize
alterations in natural aquatic habitat and (c) maintain natural streamflow velocities and
mixing patterns.
6.
The placement of fill higher than the elevation of the existing stream banks, the construction
of levees, the realignment or relocation of the channel, dredging activities in water and
excavation below existing water level are not authorized by this General Permit.
7. Bank rehabilitation, bank protection and gravel bar removal projects shall not extend across
adjacent property lines without the written permission of all affected property owners.
8. During construction activities, all public and private property including existing vegetation,
landscape features and monuments within, along and adjacent to the work area, shall be
protected and preserved to the maximum degree possible. This shall include, but not be
limited to, precautions taken to minimize damage, erosion, injury or destruction; prevent
pollution; provide protection of all trees and other woody plants; special care being taken to
protect the natural vegetation and surroundings to include all natural drainageways, ponds,
lakes, wetlands, woods and fields; and storage of materials in such manner to prevent
leaching which would be injurious to soils and to plants. Precautions should be taken to
prevent damage to pipes, conduits and other underground structures.
9.
Archaeological artifacts discovered during the performance of work authorized under this
General Permit must be adequately protected and their discovery promptly reported to the
Bureau for Historic Preservation, Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission,
400 North Street, Second Floor, Harrisburg, PA 17120-0093, telephone (717) 783-8946.
10.
As part of the registration to use this General Permit, the owner shall submit duplicate sets
of labeled color photographs which show the scope of the project and the existing condition
of the bank to be protected and/or the gravel bar to be removed. The two sets of
photographs shall be mounted on 8½” x 11” sheets. The date of photography and a written
description of what is shown shall be provided for each photograph.
E.
ADDITIONAL CRITERIA FOR BANK REHABILITATION AND PROTECTION
1.
Slope protection and dumped rock protection shall not exceed the placement of a maximum
of 1 cubic yard per running foot below the plane of the ordinary high water mark or the high
tide line (in order to be consistent with the requirements of the Corps of Engineers). Where
slope protection or dumped rock protection is required to be placed in the floodway or

3150-PM-BWEW0503
Rev. 6/2013
1-4
floodplain above the plane of the ordinary high water mark or the high tide line, an additional
1 cubic yard per running foot of stream is authorized.
2.
Riprap and other types of slope protection, except for vegetative stabilization and dumped
stone protection, should be constructed in two layers.
(A)
An outer layer of massive particles to resist the forces of moving water.
(1) The outer layer or principal protection layer should consist of well-graded
particles. It is recommended that riprap slope protection shall be sized in
accordance with the following Table E(2) designated DESIGN PARAMETERS
FOR RIPRAP.
(2)
The protecting layer should be placed to a minimum thickness approximately
6 inches greater than the maximum particle size, or in accordance with the
following Table E(2) for riprap design.
(B)
An underlying filter layer of fine material or filter fabric.
(1) Satisfactory filter materials are mixtures of gravel and clean sand with about
80% of the material ranging between 2 inches and 1/4 inch. An alternative is a
commercially available geosynthetic filter fabric that will allow drainage without
loss of bank material.
(2)
The gravel filter layer should be placed to a thickness in accordance with the
following Table E(2) for riprap design.

4. Only clean, nonpolluting materials shall be used for bank rehabilitation and protection
projects in order to minimize excessive turbidity by leaching of fines as well as to preclude
entrance of undesirable chemical constituents to the watercourse by natural runoff or
leaching.
5.
Slag is not authorized for use under this General Permit unless it qualifies as a co-product
which is suitable for the specific use.
6. Along streams which are classified priority 1-A or designated Scenic Rivers, it is
recommended that bank protection and rehabilitation projects shall maintain the natural
character of the bank by incorporating vegetation (see Drawing Nos. 11, 12 and 13).
However, woody vegetation shall not be incorporated in riprap protection. The use of
concrete rubble for dumped rock protection is prohibited along Scenic Rivers.
7.
Dumped rock protection shall have a maximum exterior slope of 1.5 horizontal to 1.0 vertical
and a minimum top width of 18 inches at the top of the zone to be protected, as shown on
Drawing No. 3B. No filter layer is required for dumped rock protection using well-graded
rock. National Stone Association R-7 rock is the minimum rock size to be used for dumped
rock protection.
8.
Slope protection should not be placed with an exterior slope steeper than 1.5 horizontal to
1.0 vertical.
9. For rock riprap installations, a trench must be excavated at the toe of the slope to provide a
supporting base. This trench should be extended to an elevation of at least 2 feet below the
streambed level and be filled with the same material as the outer protection layer.
10. Immediately following completion of the project all disturbed slopes shall be stabilized to
prevent accelerated erosion in accordance with the approved Erosion and Sediment Control
Plan.
11.
Bank rehabilitation and bank protection projects shall be maintained in a functional condition
at all times. Periodic removal of debris deposited on the bank project may be necessary.
12. Each bank rehabilitation and bank protection project shall not hinder commercial or
recreational navigation nor interfere with the normal migration of fish.
13.

25% of the total channel width, and may not extend above the normal water flow a distance
greater than 6 inches at the streamward tip.
14. The maximum height of a vertical wall authorized under this General Permit is 6 feet
measured from the top of wall to the streambed or lakebed adjacent to the wall.
F.
ADDITIONAL CRITERIA FOR REMOVAL OF GRAVEL BARS
1.
The gravel bar removal shall be completed as a single operation in as short a time period as
possible. Such projects shall follow the procedures for channel restoration projects
contained in the Department’s Erosion and Sediment Pollution Control Program Manual,
which is available from the County Conservation District Offices.
2.
Removal of a gravel bar shall be limited to periods of low flow;
a gravel bar shall be
removed only to a depth 6 inches above the water level at time of the project
. For
streams where there are periods of no flow, depth of gravel bar removal is limited to 6 inches
above the elevation of the streambed so as not to disturb the existing low flow channel.

Excavation into a streambed or into a streambank adjacent to a gravel bar is prohibited.
5.
Material removed from the stream channel shall be deposited outside regulated waters of
the Commonwealth including the floodway and any wetlands adjacent to the project, except
when the material is suitable and used for bank reconstruction. When the excavated
material is to be used to rebuild opposite streambanks, the material shall be hauled (and not
pushed) to the placement location.
6. Clean gravel bar material may be used only as an underlying fill or filter material to
reconstruct and stabilize an adjacent streambank where the work can be performed in
accordance with Part One, Section E, Item 2 of this General Permit. Gravel bar material
used in this manner shall be faced with an outer layer of adequately sized slope protection.
Gravel bar material which is removed shall not be used for dumped rock protection as
defined in this General Permit.
7.
In accordance with §105.233 of Chapter 105 rules and regulations, the removal of sand,
gravel or other minerals from submerged lands of this Commonwealth, in quantities which
are commercially usable or marketable, shall require a written agreement from and royalty
payments to the Commonwealth.
8.
Gravel bar removal on lands owned or administered by the Commonwealth as State Parks,
State Game Lands or State Forests shall require prior written approval from the
administering agency.
9. Gravel bar removal may have limited long-term benefits where there is a streambank
erosion problem. Therefore, the use of bank rehabilitation and bank protection measures in
conjunction with gravel bar removal is recommended.
10.
The owner is advised that a permit from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers may be required
for gravel bar removal projects (see Instructions, Item 4).

13. Pennsylvania Natural Diversity Inventory (PNDI):
Coordination with the Pennsylvania Natural Heritage Program (PNHP) regarding the presence of Federal threatened
and endangered (T&E) species and State T&E species and species of special concern on the project site is a
regulatory requirement for this permit application/registration. Early coordination (prior to submission) with the
appropriate jurisdictional agencies using the PA Conservation Explorer, previously known as the Pennsylvania Natural
Diversity Inventory (PNDI) Environmental Review Tool (PNDI ER Tool), is the most effective means of timely permit
decisions. To provide proof of coordination with PNHP and PNDI, applicants must submit a PNDI Receipt as part of
the permit application/registration.
Please check the appropriate box indicating the information provided:
?
PNDI reviews can still be obtained free-of-charge for users without access to a computer using the standard
process of requesting a project review directly from each jurisdictional agency—PA Department of Conservation
and Natural Resources (DCNR), PA Game Commission (PGC), PA Fish and Boat Commission (PFBC) and the
U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (US FWS) instead of generating a PNDI Receipt instantly through the
PA Conservation Explorer. The standard PNDI review process user is responsible for securing PNDI Receipts
from each jurisdictional agency—DCNR, PGC, PFBC and the U.S. FWS.
o
PNDI Receipts from each jurisdictional agency will be included with the application/registration package.
The PNDI review is not complete or satisfied unless PNDI Receipts are included from all four jurisdictional
agencies listed above. Applicants are encouraged to use the PA Conservation Explorer because using
this tool is the most effective means of a timely permit decision.
?
If the review determines there are potential impacts to a T&E species, the PNDI Receipt will provide an
explanation of the potential impact(s) and instructions on how to resolve the potential impact(s). READ AND
FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY.
Following the procedure outlined by the Department of
Environmental Protection (DEP)in the Policy for Pennsylvania Natural Diversity Inventory (PNDI) Coordination
During Permit Review and Evaluation, No. 021-0200-001 (PNDI Policy) will allow applicants to meet regulatory
requirements.
There are two options available to applicants for handling PNDI coordination
Process: sequential review and concurrent review.
Sequential Review:
?
The applicant runs
the PNDI search and completes all coordination with the appropriate jurisdictional
agencies, prior to submittingthe permit application/registration.
The applicant will include with the
application/registration a PNDI Receipt, and clearance letter(s) from the jurisdictional agency(ies) if the PNDI
Receipt shows a Potential Impact.
?
If selecting sequential review, different items are required to be inlcuded as part of the permit
application/registration based on the search results:
o

AND the additioanl information outlined on the PNDI Receipt along with proof
of delivery to the
appropriate jurisdictional agency(ies) where further coordination is required. If this coordination is not
complete prior to submitting the permit application/registration package; the application/registration will be
subject to the concurrent review process as outlined below
Concurrent Review:
?
The applicant runs the PNDI search and will engage in consultation with the applicable jurisdictional
agency(ies). DEP will allow technical review of the permit to occur concurrently with the T&E species and
State species of special concern consultation with the jurisdictional agency(ies)
?
If selecting a concurrent review, the applicant will include with the permit application/registration a signed
PNDI Receipt processed through the PA Conservation Explorer OR PNDI receipts from each jurisdictional
agency if the standard process of requesting a project review was used.
o
It is important to note, however, that the concurrent review option carries certain risks and consequences
to the applicant, including:
?
The permit may not be issued/acknowledged until each potential impact is resolved.
See
DEP’s
Permit Review Process and Permit Decision Guarantee Policy, Document No. 021-2100-001
(PRP/PDG Policy).
?
The proposed activity subject to the permit application/registration may need to be redesigned as a
result of the PNDI consultation
(

CHAPTER 105 FEE(S) CALCULATION WORKSHEET
Additional information can be found at
25 PA Code §105.13
(relating to regulated activities –information and fees),
the General Permit Registration
(
3150-PM-BWEW0500

)
Federal, State, county or municipal agencies or municipal authorities:
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
all authorizations
the box
that apply
next
to theto
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
Commonwealth
to the “
of Pennsylvania Clean Water Fund
OR
Conservation District Clean Water Fund
”,
whichever
is
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.

River Watershed), or Chester, Lancaster, or York County. If YES, answer 1b and 1c.
If YES
for 1a, answer YES for
1b
if your project proposes a permanent impervious surface(s) within the footprint of a
waterbody, including wetlands, and enter the amount of impervious fill within the waterbody on the blank line
following the question. Impervious surfaces are defined as a hard surface area which either prevents or retards
the entry of water into the soil. Common impervious surfaces include roof tops, walkways, patios, driveways,
parking lots or storage areas, concrete or asphalt paving, gravel roads, packed earthen material, and oiled
surfaces. Examples of project fill components constructed as a result of permanent discharges of dredged or fill
material into waters of the United States that are considered to be an impervious surface may include, but are
not limited to: house pads, walkways, patios, driveways, parking lots, storage areas, concrete, asphalt paving,
pre-cast concrete planks or slabs, road crossings, and concrete abutments. For bank stabilization activities, an
impervious surface is only applicable to the concrete lining of waterways and grouted riprap/rock within
jurisdictional waters of the United States that exist above the mean high water (MHW) line in tidal waters or
above the ordinary high water mark (OHWM) in non-tidal waters.
The following list contains examples of project components that are
n
ot considered impervious surface cover:
temporary fills/structures; fill for lawns/parks; mechanized land clearing (tilling, etc.); pavers (specifically
designed to allow water infiltration, i.e. with vegetation holes); boat ramps with loose rock, stone, gravels, and
metal grate panels; and bank stabilization with ungrouted riprap, rock, utilizing bio-engineering techniques (e.g.
willow planting, root wads, large woody debris, etc.); rock filled gabions; and any project feature that is
specifically designed to infiltrate water.
If YES
for 1a, answer YES for
1c
if you will be removing any impervious surfaces as part of your project.
If YES, then
enter the amount of impervious surface being permanently removed as part of project.
