A draft of the PADEP’s Management of Fill Policy is out for review, here are some thoughts from an Environmental Consultant.
Land owners, real estate developers, excavation contractors, municipalities, environmental consultants and lenders need to take note of the upcoming changes that will be occurring with the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection’s (PADEP’s) Management of Fill Policy (Fill Policy). During mid-November 2018 PADEP issued a notice that the current (first published during 2004 then amended in 2010) Fill Policy is being revised. A draft has been issued and is out for review until early January 2019. Projects and activities that involve earth disturbance or excavation will be impacted by the new Fill Policy.
