To register a complaint regarding blasting, contact the Department of Code Compliance.
Blasting and explosives use is regulated under Title 25 of the Pa. Code, and is enforced by the PA Department of Environmental Projection, Bureau of Mining Programs.
The Code Compliance Department will compare the information provided by the complainant, ie. date and approximate location of the blasting, with the issued Fire Permits for blasting to determine the location of the blast and the blasting contractor responsible. The Code Compliance Department will then forward this information to the PA DEP, Bureau of Mining Programs so the Bureau can begin their investigation.
The Bureau will begin with a complete review of records and any other information which may be available from the blasting inspector. See Blasting Complaint Protocol for further information.
