Page 410, after line 33, insert:
"G.  The State Water Control Board shall give due consideration to the provision of additional nitrogen and phosphorus nutrient allocations to the Opequon Water Reclamation Facility based upon:  (1) the Commonwealth's multiple investments in the facility through the Water Quality Improvement Fund, (2) the execution of a Water Quality Improvement Grant agreement for the installation of state-of-the art nutrient removal technology on or before December 31, 2008, (3) capital investments made prior to July 1, 2005 to expand the facility's capacity, (4) the capacity under which the facility will likely operate by December 31, 2010, (5) the facility's schedule for planning, design, and construction, and (6) the discharge flow authorized by the facility's VPDES permit and the tiered design flows contained in that permit."

(This amendment provides criteria for use by the State Water Control Board in determining whether to approve additional nitrogen and phosphorus nutrient allocations for the Opequon Water Reclamation Facility. This facility requires additional nutrient allocations due to expanded capacity, which was begun prior to July 1, 2005. The facility is also in the process of installing state-of-the-art nutrient reduction technology. The Opequon facility's nutrient reduction project will be complete prior to 17 other facilities for which additional nutrient allocations were granted by the State Water Control Board.)
