The Susquehanna River Basin Compact requires the Susquehanna River Basin Commission to plan for the immediate and long-range development and use of the water resources of the Basin. The Comprehensive Plan provides an overarching framework for the Commission to manage the Basin’s water resources and serves as a guide for all Commission programs and activities. The Commission is currently developing an updated Plan that will become effective in 2021, which marks the halfway point in the 100-year Susquehanna River Basin Compact. This updated Comprehensive Plan outlines the vision, needs, and strategy for effectively managing the water resources of the Basin during the period from 2021 to 2041.
The Commission is accepting public comments on the Draft 2021 Comprehensive Plan for the Water Resources of the Susquehanna River Basin through February 19, 2021. Please click here for more information abou thow to submit comments.
