Series V. Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP), formerly Department of Environmental Resources (DER)

Scope and Content Notes:

The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection is the government agency responsible for regulating the operations of businesses that have an impact on the environment. They maintain a website at: http://www.dep.state.pa.us. The DEP has the authority to issue, suspend, and revoke permits for storage and treatment of various kinds of wastes and for other related operations. In this role and as the host of the Environmental Hearing Board until 1988, the formerly named Department of Environmental Resources was the main agency that CRY dealt with in its mission to close down Mill Service's waste storage site in Yukon. The Department changed its name to the Department of Environmental Protection in 1995. These files hold correspondence between DER officials, Mill Service personnel, CRY members, and others; records of public meetings held between DER and CRY; and information on various operations conducted by the DER.
