Important Information on Recording PCSM Instrument Filing Notices

Due to recent problems with recording the Post Construction Stormwater Management (PCSM) Instrument Filing Notices for permitted construction projects, the Luzerne Conservation District and PA DEP met with the Luzerne County Recorder of Deeds Office.  The County Recorder is requesting that the following documents be recorded as one filing:

  1. PCSM Instrument Filing Notice Document 3150-PM-BWEW0556
  2. Instrument for the Declaration of Restrictions and Covenants
  3. PCSM plan (on no larger than 11”x17” paper)

This will avoid the county from charging recording fees for each document and requiring the PCSM plans to be signed by the county and notarized separately.  In addition, the documents should be recorded as a “Declaration”, which falls under the “Deeds – Miscellaneous” category.
