Capital Region Water is seeking a Categorical Exclusion (CE) from environmental review through the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection for its Phase 4 PENNVEST SW Pro-FI Project.

We are accepting written comments from the public for 30 days following the publication of this Public Notice. Written comments can be mailed to:

Capital Region Water, 3003 North Front Street, Harrisburg, PA 17110.

The work is geographically located at Midtown (4th Street between Harris and Reily Streets and Harris Street between Fulton and Logan Streets), Boys & Girls Club (1227 Berryhill Street), Peffer (4th and Peffer Streets), and Swatara (430-418 S 15th Street). This Project focuses on four green stormwater infrastructure sites within the City of Harrisburg. The work on these projects includes right-of-way green stormwater infrastructure (GSI) and community gathering spaces with adjacent rain gardens and swales on vacant lots and a community center site. Elements within these projects include, but are not limited to, installation of subsurface detention, porous pavement and porous asphalt, tree pits, sidewalk planters, stormwater bumpouts, drainage system improvements including inlets and connected laterals, site furnishings and planting, and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant curb ramps. This project qualifies for a CE because due diligence agency reviews relating to endangered species, archaeological/historical sites, and fish & wildlife resources did not indicate any adverse impact from this project. This project’s cost and subsequent operational cost savings were integrated into 2022 user fees as part of the rate setting process. Supporting documents are available for review by submitting a request to:

Capital Region Water, c/o 4 PENNVEST SW Pro-FI Project, 3003 North Front Street, Harrisburg, PA 17110.

Capital Region Water can be contacted by phone at 888‑510‑0606 or by email at ATTN “4 PENNVEST SW Pro-FI Project”.
