The Susquehanna River Basin Commission is responsible for coordinating water resource and planning efforts within the basin. The states of New York, Pennsylvania, and Maryland are party to this compact.
The Compact established the Susquehanna River Basin Commission (SRBC) as the agency to coordinate the water resources efforts of the three states and the federal government. The commissioners, or their alternates, meet periodically to act on applications for projects using water, adopt regulations, and direct planning and management activities affecting the basin's water resources.
