Chapter 102 Permitting Update
ADDED 04/27/2021: Visual Site Inspection Fillable Report
An updated version of the PCSM Spreadsheet has been posted to DEP’s website (version 1.8). This version includes two updates to the Volume tab: 1) all of the post-construction impervious land covers are available to select for pre-construction, and 2) “Soil Amendments” is no longer a BMP option in the drop-down Structural BMP Table, and per the Instructions should be calculated via the PA SW BMP Manual and reported in the Non-Structural - Other Credits field.
