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
(
PNDI Policy
pages 7-8).
Note: Any substantive project or design
changes to the application will require a new application and fee to be submitted.

Permanent Impacts –For the purpose of the PASPGP-5, permanent impacts are defined as waters of the United States,
including jurisdictional wetlands indefinitely filled, flooded, excavated, or drained as a result of the regulated activity.
Permanent impacts may or may not be considered a loss of waters of the United States, as defined above, since some
permanent impacts, such as those associated with bank stabilization and stream/wetland enhancement projects, may not
have a permanent adverse effect.

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.

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.

Request for a Bog Turtle Habitat Evaluation (Phase 1 Survey)
Federal/State Screening Process for Bog Turtles (Glyptemys muhlenbergii) and/or their habitat in
Adams, Berks, Bucks, Carbon (Aquashicola Creek Watershed only), Chester, Cumberland,
Dauphin (Swatara Creek Watershed only), Delaware, Franklin (Antietam Creek Watershed),
Lancaster, Lebanon, Lehigh, Monroe, Montgomery, Northampton, Schuylkill (Swatara Creek
Watershed only), and York Counties.
If you are proposing work in wetlands in the counties listed above and have not completed the
Endangered Species coordination process with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife (USFWS), you may complete this
form and necessary accompanying information and submit to the points of contact listed below to have
the required Phase 1 Survey completed; or have an environmental consultant complete the Phase I survey
field work and documentation and submit to the USFWS for review and approval. To expedite the review
process, applicants may have the Phase I survey completed by a qualified bog turtle surveyor. More
information on the bog turtle and a listing of USFWS qualified surveyors can be found on the USFWS
website:
www.fws.gov/northeast/pafo/
In 1974 the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission, under Section 2305 of the Fish and Boat Code, listed the
bog turtle as an endangered species, and in 1997 the USFWS, under the Endangered Species Act of 1973, listed
the bog turtle as a threatened species. Poaching and loss of habitat are two primary reasons for the decline in
turtle populations throughout the Mid-Atlantic Region.
In order to provide continued protection for the turtle and to minimize conflicts during project development and
permitting, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, USFWS, and PA Department of Environmental Protection have
developed a screening process to identify potential bog turtle habitat. Representatives of these agencies will
provide guidance regarding this special screening process for projects that may impact wetlands in the counties
listed above.
INSTRUCTIONS
If your proposed project includes a
wetland impact
in one of the seventeen counties listed above, and you are
requesting a bog turtle habitat screening from the agencies, follow the steps below:
1. Run a Pennsylvania Natural Diversity Inventory (PNDI) data search at:
conservationexplorer.state.pa.us/
. If
PNDI search receipt indicates further consultation with USFWS, follow instructions in “AGENCY COMMENTS
section of the PNDI Receipt. For all other results, go to Step 2.
2. Complete and submit the attached form and provide: a) the PNDI search results; b) location map; c) latitude
and longitude; d) driving directions; e) project description; f) size of property; g) wetland delineation, if available
h) area of impact to the wetland; and i) a sketch or a plan of the site detailing the proposed project, showing
wetland impact location(s).
3. When the request is received by the POC/agency listed below, you will be contacted by a representative of
that agency to schedule an on-site assessment of the wetlands for bog turtle habitat. The representative will
complete the Bog Turtle Habitat Evaluation Form. A letter with the findings will be sent to you.
4. If it is determined that the project area (which includes the direct and indirect impact area) is potential bog
turtle habitat, the agency representative will discuss your options with you. These may include revising project
plans to avoid impacts to wetlands, contacting a professional bog turtle surveyor (see web site above), or
consulting with the USFWS. Neither a State Permit nor a Federal Permit can be authorized/verified without the
Corps or USFWS resolving a potential bog turtle conflict, if applicable.
5. If you have any questions specific to this process, please contact the appropriate agency representative for
your county.
