Susquehanna River Basin Commission (SRBC) Public Notifications Letter McCoy Well No. 1 SRBC Pending No. 2021-027 & McCoy Well No. 2 SRBC Pending No. 2021-028
Armagh Township Residents within a 1-mile radius of the McCoy wells were issued a public notification on a standard form letter required by SRBC. The notice complies with guidelines set forth by the regulatory agencies that oversee Public Water Supply systems. It is a notice that provides the public an opportunity to comment on anything related to the MABL applications with the SRBC. No action is required if you have no comment on the pending applications.
MABL owns and operates three wells in Milroy, two of which are referenced in the Public Notification letter. These wells are permitted by the PA Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) and have been operational since 1998. After many years, these wells also need to be permitted by the SRBC to be used as a public water supply. MABL has been working with the SRBC for several years, doing studies and testing to prove the DEP permitted rates of withdrawal are consistent with SRBC environmental guidelines. The public notification requirement is a required step in the process to complete this regulatory process.
