  CWF/MF designated receiving water in state water plan basin C (Lower Lehigh River). As per the Department’s current existing use list, the receiving stream does not have an existing use classification that is more protective than its designated use. Pennsylvania's obligation not only stems from federal court decrees, but also from Pennsylvania's Clean Streams Law and the Pennsylvania Constitution, which declares that clean water is a right for all Pennsylvanians. Restoring and maintaining local water quality is a shared responsibility.

  Monitor the flood stages of local rivers, stream levels and flow discharge provided by USGS, NWS and NOAA Local stream and river levels - Lehigh River Basin, Delaware River, Schuylkill River Basin. Directions to the Lehigh River Watershed The Upper and Middle Lehigh River Watersheds are located in Eastern Pennsylvania in portions of Carbon, Luzerne, Monroe, Schuylkill, Lackawanna and Wayne counties. The area within the watershed consists of approximately square miles. The focus of this TMDL is the Lehigh River in Carbon County.

A settling basin receives filter backwash from the facility’s surface water intake (Intake No. 1) on the Lehigh River. Water from the settling basin then comingles with untreated NCCW generated by the cement manufacturing operations and stormwater before discharging to the Lehigh River via Outfall No. at a flow up to mgd. Continuous water-discharge and water-quality station records. Pennsylvania water-quality network. Stream conditions of Chester County biological monitoring network. Acid mine drainage projects in the upper Schuylkill and upper Lehigh River basins. Special Notes, Remark Codes, and Selected Constituent Definitions.

WATER QUALITY AND DISCHARGE OF STREAMS IN THE LEHIGH RIVER BASIN, PENNSYLVANIA By EDWARD F. MCCARREN and WALTER B. KEIGHTON ABSTRACT The Lehigh River, miles long, is the second largest tributary to the Delaware River.

The Lehigh River, miles long, is the second largest tributary to the Delaware River. It drains 1, square miles in four physiographic provinces. The Lehigh River basin includes mountainous and forested areas, broad agricultural valleys and areas of urban and industrial development. In the headwaters the water is of good quality and has a low concentration of solutes.

The discharge of streams in the Neshaminy Creek basin, as well as in other stream basins throughout the Commonwealth, has been measured continuously sinceand intermittent and monthly samples of water have been taken at selected locations for chemical analyses.

In addition, streams with excellent water quality may be designated High Quality Waters (HQ) or Exceptional Value Waters (EV).

The water quality in an HQ stream can be lowered only if a discharge is the result of necessary social or economic development, the water quality criteria are met, and all existing uses of the stream are protected. Lackawaxen River to Lehigh River. § d. Drainage List D.

DRAINAGE AREA square miles. PERIOD OF RECORDOctober to current year. GAGE. A watershed is an area of land that drains all the streams and rainfall to a common outlet such as the outflow of a reservoir, mouth of a bay, or any point along a stream channel. Watersheds can be as small as a footprint or large enough to encompass all the land that drains water into rivers that drain into Chesapeake Bay, where it enters the Atlantic Ocean.
