Community Information

DEP believes that it is vital for citizens to be informed about environmental issues in their communities, especially those issues that are of significant local interest and impact over an extended period of time. It is the purpose of the Community Involvement section to make information about major environmental issues within the eight counties of southwestern Pennsylvania conveniently located and accessible to all residents.

Upcoming Events

If there is sufficient public interest, DEP will hold hearings on proposed operating permit revisions and proposed State Implementation Plan (SIP) revisions for operators to incorporate Reasonably Available Control Technology (RACT) II plans. Please visit the regional RACT II page for current information on hearing dates and times.
