Please use this form to submit comments to the DRBC on the draft docket for anapplication to renew  approval and to modify conditions of the DRBC approval of the docket holder’s Western Regional WWTP and its discharge. This docket also renews approval of a project to re-rate the WWTP from 44 million gallons per day (mgd) to 50 mgd, which is conditioned upon the construction of a new outfall at the existing WWTP.

The modification to the DRBC approval consists of an increase in the CBOD20 allocation for the WWTP from 10,500 pounds per day (lbs/day) to 13,761 lbs/day (under 44 mgd operation) and to 15,638 lbs/day (under 50 mgd operation).

The docket holder’s Western Regional WWTP is located on West Front Street, adjacent to the Delaware River, approximately one mile south of the Commodore Barry Bridge in the City of Chester, Delaware County, Pennsylvania. The WWTP will continue to discharge to Water Quality Zone 4 of the Delaware River at River Mile 80.7.
