PCSM Spreadsheet Update:

An updated version of the PCSM Spreadsheet has been posted to DEP’s website (version 1.9, October 2021).  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.  

It is recommended to check DEP’s website and utilize the latest version of the spreadsheet for each PAG-02/Individual Permit Application, and to carefully review the PCSM Spreadsheet Instructions prior to, and during the completion of, the spreadsheet.
