New E & S Plan Template for Timber Harvesting Operations
Over the past year, NTHA has worked with the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture - Hardwoods Development Council, the Pennsylvania Sustainable Forestry Initiative Implementation Committee, and others in a workgroup to update and republish the E&S Plan Template for Timber Harvesting Operations. We are happy to announce that the new plan is official and available for use!


The DEP's Bureau of Clean Water has worked with the group and has posted the updated template to DEPs eLibrary website HERE

The template is intended for operations that require a written E&S Plan under 102.4(b)(2), but do not require a permit under Chapter 102.
