Air, Noise, Dust Mitigation And Other DEP Citations

When neighbors or other businesses around a construction site start to complain of too much noise or the quality of the air due to excessive dust and other air pollutants that can increase due to construction work, it can lead to a civil violation cited by the DEP. The DEP is a state agency that has the authority to make such citations.

When a construction project uses a large piece of machinery, the state requires that the use of this equipment be documented and a record of dust mitigation be kept. The state provides a specific form for this. If your company needs help with dust mitigation compliance, I can provide it. In addition, if you have received a citation for violation of this rule or other air monitoring or noise restrictions, I can provide a strong representation against the DEP.

Compliance is important to the success of your construction company. If you want ongoing counsel or advice prior to the start of a project, I can also assist you with such matters.
