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 hearings and issues Adjudications, Opinions, and Orders. Hearings
before the Board are similar to non-jury civil trials before Common Pleas Courts or Federal District Courts.
Appeals from Board decisions are taken to the Commonwealth Court of Pennsylvania. The Board’s Rules of Practice
and Procedure appear at 25 Pa. Code Chapter 1021. The five Judges of the Board are appointed by the Governor
subject to confirmation by the Pennsylvania State Senate.
