DEP Opens Comment Period for Proposed Technical Guidance Documents on Riparian Buffers

The Department of Environmental Protection invites land developers, local governments, environmental consultants, and the general public to comment on two interim final technical guidance documents that address changes in the requirements to provide equivalency and offsetting for riparian buffers. The comment period will last 60 days.

The technical guidance documents provide information about changes in the requirements for installing riparian buffers when conducting earth disturbance activities. These requirements were altered by Act 162, which was signed into law on October 22, 2014.

Riparian buffers are vegetated areas along waterways that absorb stormwater, often installed in an area where development inhibits natural stormwater recharge. They prevent waterways from being inundated with excess stormwater, which can carry with it sediment and other pollutants.

The public may submit written comments by May 20 to Jennifer Orr of the Bureau of Waterways Engineering and Wetlands, P.O. Box 8460, Harrisburg, PA 17105-8460. Electronic comments may be submitted via email to [email protected].
