HARRISBURG – DEP has issued guidance for the implementation of Act 15, a new law supported by PLNA, that exempts high tunnels from the Storm Water Management Act under certain circumstances.

The guidance is meant for DEP field staff and local governments employees who enforce provisions of the Storm Water Management Act. The guidance is also helpful for those who may be constructing high tunnels to understand Act 15 and how it is being applied. It takes a law that, in some sections, is a bit hard to understand and puts the provisions in clearer language.

You may download the new guidance document by clicking here.

If you have any problems with DEP or your local government in getting your high tunnels exempted under this new law, call (717.238.2033) or email Gregg Robertson at PLNA.
