Welcome to the Pennsylvania Environmental Hearing Board (the Board). Established by the Environmental Hearing Board Act, 35 P.S. §§ 7511-7516, the Board hears appeals from actions of the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection. The Board holds non-jury trials and issues Adjudications, Opinions and Orders. Trials before the Board are similar to non-jury civil trials before Common Pleas Courts or Federal District Courts. Appeals from the Board are taken to the Commonwealth Court of Pennsylvania. The five Judges of the Board are appointed by the Governor subject to confirmation by the Pennsylvania Senate. The Judges of the Board are Chairman and Chief Judge Thomas W. Renwand, Judge Bernard A. Labuskes Jr., Judge Michelle A. Coleman, Judge Richard P. Mather, Sr., and Judge Steven C. Beckman. The Board’s Rules of Practice and Procedure appear at 25 Pa. Code Chapter 1021.
