Are Pennsylvania Air Emissions and Permitting Fees on the Rise? – Update
Posted: March 21st, 2018Authors: Christina L.
Last year I penned a blog regarding potential changes to emissions and permitting fees within Pennsylvania. The blog was based upon information provided by the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (PADEP) to the Air Quality Technical Advisory Committee (AQTAC) on September 6, 2017 and included a description of new and proposed fee increases. Nearly five months later, a PADEP representative provided a brief update to the AQTAC during the February 8, 2018 meeting.
During the AQTAC meeting, PADEP presented a comparison of the proposed Pennsylvania emissions and permitting fees to the emissions and permitting fees in surrounding states. Based on the data provided by PADEP, the proposed PADEP emissions and permitting fees were average to slightly above average. PADEP is still working to finalize the emissions and permitting fees and hopes to implement the revised fees during calendar year 2019.
For additional information provided by PADEP during the AQTAC meeting feel free to give me a call at 610.933.5246 x135 (or email at firstname.lastname@example.org).
