The Environmental Quality Board will meet on April 19, and among other regulations, will consider proposed fee increases for radon certification and a 50 percent increase in fees for the licensing and inspection of radioactive materials.
The Board will also hear 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 increases are just some of 6 or more fee increase packages DEP will be proposing this year to make up for funding shortfalls.
Also on the agenda is 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.
The meeting will be held in Room 105 Rachel Carson Building starting at 9:00 a.m.
Copies of the regulations and supporting documents have been posted 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.
