Pennsylvania launches electronic permit application for coal mines

The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) has launched an electronic mining permit (e-permit) application for surface coal mines.

As an EHS professional, it’s hard to tell if you are being paid competitively, and as an employer, it’s hard to tell if you are offering salaries that are competitive and efficient. For a Limited Time we’re offering a FREE copy of the 2017 EHS Salary Guide! Download Now

The e-permit application applies to surface bituminous coal operators applying for new operating permits. For the first time, operators can now pay permit fees online. The mining e-permit application includes an electronic public report that allows citizens and other agencies to review and comment on an application through a notice in the Pennsylvania Bulletin.

The new online permit application will make the review process faster for the DEP and operators and will provide more transparency to the public. The e-permit application is DEP’s first step in shifting agencywide permitting from paper to online applications.

The e-permit application was developed by the DEP Mining Program and the DEP Bureau of Information Technology with input from industry partners. Following a training webinar, the e-permit application for bituminous surface mine operators officially launched on February 13, 2017. According to the DEP, industry input on the application will help planned future upgrades.
