As noted in the summary, the purpose of the 90-day comment period is to receive comments on a proposed revision of the entire SRBC Comprehensive Plan and the hearings are being held in conjunction with the 90-day public comment period. The Comprehensive Plan provides an overarching framework for SRBC to manage and develop the basin's water resources and serves as a guide for all SRBC programs and activities, as required by the Susquehanna River Basin Compact, U.S. Public Law 91-575. It is further intended as a useful resource for SRBC's member jurisdictions, water resource managers, private sector interests and others in the basin. The Comprehensive Plan was last revised in 1987.
