The Environmental Quality Board Tuesday approved proposed fee increases for radon certification and a 50 percent increase in fees for the licensing and inspection of radioactive materials for public comment.
The Board also heard a report on the review of laboratory accreditation fees recommending they be increased by between 20-30 percent to make up for funding shortfalls.
These fee issues are just some of 6 or more fee increase packages DEP will be proposing this year to make up for funding shortfalls.
Also approved by the Board was a final regulation making changes to the Land Recycling Program and a proposed regulation making stream designation changes for 4 streams in Berks, Chester, Monroe, Northampton and Susquehanna counties.
Copies of the regulations and supporting documents are available on the Environmental Quality Board webpage.For more information, contact Laura Edinger by calling 717-772-3277 or send email to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
