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 The Commission superseded the Interstate Advisory Committee on the Susquehanna River Basin.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. From its source at Otsego Lake near Cooperstown, New York, the Susquehanna River flows 444 miles to Havre de Grace, Maryland, where the river meets the Chesapeake Bay. Half of the Bay's freshwater flow comes from the Susquehanna River.

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).
