Comprehensive Plan

The Commission’s Comprehensive Plan for the Water Resources of the Susquehanna River Basin – updated and adopted in December 2013, with amendments to follow each year - provides a framework for the Commission to manage and develop the Basin’s water resources and serves as a guide for all Commission programs and activities. The Plan is also a resource for the Commission’s member jurisdictions, water resource managers, private sector interests and others in the Basin. The Plan calls for a five-year update to help ensure the Plan is current and of long-term value and usefulness.

Amendments to the Comprehensive Plan will be part of a Commission public hearing to be held on May 9, 2019, in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania and are scheduled for Commission action at its next business meeting, tentatively scheduled for June 14, 2019. The plan is to be amended by adding: 1) projects approved by the Commission from July 2018 through June 2019; and 2) an updated Water Resources Program for fiscal years 2019 through 2021.

On June 15, 2018, the Plan was amended by adding the annual Water Resources Program – FY2019-2021.
