The Susquehanna River Basin Commission was created upon enactment of the Susquehanna River Basin Compact by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, the states of New York and Maryland, and Congress. Maryland ratified the Compact in 1967 (Chapter 391, Acts of 1967). The Commission superseded the Interstate Advisory Committee on the Susquehanna River Basin. The Commission formulates plans, policies, and projects for water resources development, conservation, and management of the Basin.

The Commission consists of four members. These include the governor or designee from each signatory state and one member appointed by the President of the United States (Code Environment Article, sec. 5-301).
