Water Withdrawal means the actual removal or take of water from any stream, watercourse or other body of public water. Permits or authorizations are required for any water withdrawals of 10,000 gallons per day or more of public water of the Commonwealth. Public water of the Commonwealth is defined as water occurring in any stream, lake, ground water, subterranean water or other body of water. Permits or authorizations may be required for withdrawals made on an irregular basis and at an irregular rate if a significant portion of the available water is withdrawn or if data and information collection is necessary to make a determination.
