    SECTION D. EROSION AND SEDIMENT CONTROL PLAN BMPS

    See the attached Instructions on how to complete this section.

    Erosion and Sediment Control Plan BMPs should be designed to minimize accelerated erosion and sedimentation through limiting the extent and duration of earth disturbance, protection of existing drainage and vegetation, limiting soil compaction and controlling the generation of increased runoff. The Department recommends the use of the Erosion and Sediment Control BMP Manual to achieve this goal. The E&S Plan must meet the requirements of Pa. Code § 102.4(b) and submitted with the NOI.

    Yes   No   If yes, provide a demonstration that any existing riparian buffer is undisturbed to the extent practicable.

    D.  If the regulations require a riparian buffer or riparian forest buffer and you are not providing one, list the waiver provisions in the Chapter 102 regulations, Section 102.14(d)(2)(i)-(vi), that you are requesting and provide additional documentation to demonstrate reasonable alternatives for compliance with 102.14 requirements and to demonstrate that any existing reparian buffer will remain undisturbed to the extent practicable.


         
    Note:  If the proposed activity protects, converts or establishes a riparian or riparian forest buffer a Buffer Management Plan is required in the PCSM Plan.
    3.   Thermal Impacts Analysis

    Please explain how thermal impacts associated with this project were avoided, minimized, or mitigated.      

    SECTION E. SITE RESTORATION (SR) PLAN BMPS

    See the attached Instructions on how to complete this section.

    If this section is not applicable to your project, please indicate by checking this box: N/A 
     
    For earth disturbance projects involving oil and gas activities authorized by Chapter 78 (well pads) or pipelines and other similar utility infrastructure provide the information outlined below. If your project includes both oil and gas activities authorized by Chapter 78 (well pads) or pipelines and other similar utility infrastructure and other activities requiring Post Construction Stormwater Management, provide the information outlined in this Section as well as Section F.
    Site Restoration BMPs should be designed to use natural measures to eliminate pollution, infiltrate runoff, not require extensive construction/maintenance activity, promote pollutant reduction, and preserve the integrity of stream channels. The Department recommends the use of PA Stormwater BMP manual to achieve this goal. The SR Plan must meet the requirements of Pa Code § 102.8(n) and be submitted with the NOI.

    Site Restoration Plan Information – The Site Restoration Plan should be designed to maximize volume reduction technologies, eliminate (where possible) or minimize point source discharges to surface waters, preserve the integrity of stream channels, and protect the physical, biological and chemical qualities of the receiving surface water.
     

     Design standards applied to develop the Site Restoration Plan. Check those that apply.

     Act 167 Plan – The attached SR Plan is consistent with an applicable approved Act 167 Plan.

Letter A must be checked if a current, DEP approved Act 167 plan exists.

    B.    The PCSM meets the standard design criteria from the PA Stormwater BMP Manual. For projects involving oil and gas activities authorized by a permit issued under Chapter 78 (well pads) or pipelines and other similar utility infrastructure, post construction stormwater management requirements are met for all areas that are restored to preconstruction conditions or to a condition of meadow in good condition or better.

    C.    Alternative Design Standard – The attached PCSM Plan was developed using approaches other than 102.8(g)(2).

    Will the non-discharge alternative BMPs eliminate the net change in rate, volume and quality during and after construction?
    Yes No
     
    If yes, antidegradation analysis is complete.
    If no, proceed to Part 2.
    PART 2 ANTIDEGRADATION BEST AVAILABLE COMBINATION OF TECHNOLOGIES (ABACT)
    If the net change in stormwater discharge from or after construction is not fully managed by nondischarge BMPs, the applicant must utilize ABACT BMPs to manage the difference. The Applicant must specify whether the discharge will occur during construction, post-construction or both, and identify the technologies that will be used to ensure that the discharge will be a non-degrading discharge. ABACT BMPs include but are not limited to:
