Environmental Quality Board
Notification of Proximity to Airports
Regulation No. 7-406 (#2587)

   On December 7, 2006, the Independent Regulatory Review Commission (Commission) received this proposed regulation from the Environmental Quality Board. This rulemaking amends 25 Pa. Code Chapters 271, 279, 287 and 293. The proposed regulation was published in the December 23, 2006 Pennsylvania Bulletin with a 30-day public comment period. The final-form regulation was submitted to the Commission on December 13, 2007.

   This regulation adds the term ''military airports'' to the definition of ''airport'' under existing waste facility regulations and adds a requirement for waste transfer facilities to notify ''airports'' of an anticipated expansion or a planned new facility if that facility will be within six miles of the ''airport'' runway.

   We have determined this regulation is consistent with the statutory authority of the Environmental Quality Board (35 P. S. § 6018.105(a)) and the intention of the General Assembly. Having considered all of the other criteria of the Regulatory Review Act, we find promulgation of this regulation is in the public interest.

By Order of the Commission:

   This regulation is approved.
